The Midas Tree by Lesley Phillips (53)

Joshua lives in the Garden Of Color and Light, an idyllic paradise where he is always playing and having fun. Each day is like any other, until he finds a magical golden acorn that enraptures him and propels him on an incredible adventure. 

After being guided to chase the acorn as it flies through the garden, Joshua discovers a door at the base of a tree, and once he enters his life changes forever.

Joshua is transported into a mysterious realm within “The Midas Tree.” 

Desperate to return home, he sets about exploring this unfamiliar environment. He encounters sticky situations and meets wily characters along the way. Fortunately he does not have to face them alone. His guides are the mystical creatures that live inside the tree, called Devas. They are keepers of ancient secrets that can help Joshua to cope with the obstacles he encounters and the challenges he meets. 

This spellbinding story overflows with challenges, magical creatures and mystical superpowers, which you too will discover along the way. 

“The Midas Tree” is a spiritual adventure novel aimed at a middle grade to Young Adult audience; although all the adults who have read it like it too. 

The Midas Tree is a book of light that offers techniques that can help all people cope when they are going through difficult times in their lives; as well as illuminating the path to personal enlightenment in a fun and entertaining way.

Dr Lesley Phillips says her path is to empower others to take charge of their lives by teaching them to meditate and develop their intuition, healing ability and creativity. She wrote her first book, The Midas Tree, because she wanted to make learning how to meditate fun for everyone, including kids. Lesley grew up in the UK and Australia and has lived in Canada since 1998. Before becoming an author and spiritual teacher, she was a biologist and a business woman.






REVIEW:
Cute.
Though told to be a young adult book, I actually find it acceptable middle-grade reading. 
A story about a different kind of fairy basically, called Deva, and my impression of Mother Nature... A.K.A. Morfar, and this boy's journey in a magical place.
Did I love it? No, but I did think it had something special about it. These lessons Joshua learned throughout. Really well-crafted and stuff you would want your kids reading.
The end of this book is what I could have had come together better. It felt rushed and not quite complete. At least no lessons were waiting to be completed, so that made the ending bearable, but not lovable.
Not bad for a debut book though! I'd read more by this author.

3/5

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
