A writer inspired by nature and human nature

Welcome to the first ever ALL ABOUT THE SPONSORS BLOG HOP!  These kind members of the RAVE REVIEWS BOOK CLUB (RRBC) donated their support during the 2017 conference, in the way of gift card and Kindle e-book donations for our Gift Basket Raffle. They supported us and now we are showing our support of them by pushing their book(s).  
We ask that you pick up a copy of the title listed and after reading it, leave a review.  There are several books on tour today, so please visit the HOP’S main page to follow along.  
Also, for every comment that you leave along this tour, including on the HOP’S main page, your name will be entered into a drawing for an Amazon gift card to be awarded at the end of the tour!


If people know what the future holds in store for them, they will chose from one of two options: To go headlong in pursuit of their future, or to end it before it starts. That is where life stunts us. Because of this hidden future, we spend our lives as if we are swimming in troubled waters, not knowing which way to go, and choosing our directions by chance.

This is the story of Justina. Although the future was not clear to her, she dreamt for herself, a future she wanted to live. Then, she jumped into her dream life with both legs, and without fear, she swam the troubled waters of life, scaling and dodging all obstacles, and in the end, she came out scarred but alive.

Justina is every young woman who found herself alone in the world to fend for herself. It is the story of the pitfalls that await such a woman. It is the story of survival

    I was drawn into this story from the first sentence and I did not want to put it down. A well written story of more than survival. It is about facing life’s challenges. Thank you for hosting, Bette.
