Five Star review from Readers’ Favorite
BENEATH THE GREATER SKY received the Five Star Award from Readers’ Favorite: “Reaching wisdom and finding our own truth is indeed always a gripping journey in itself, no matter the situation. And this is what Beneath the Greater Sky brings us. It is so aptly titled..especially for how it ends. The book takes us on an emotional roller coaster following the aftermath of a tragic life event – confusion, denial, anger and, ultimately, the emergence of the strength of human spirit…The author makes great use of situations as metaphors for our protagonist. This is a book purchase positively worth making.”
