Sacred Hearts Rising: Finding Your Wings by Brenda Hammon is an anthology of essays about healing, growth, and self-reflection told through the eyes of several people's experiences. In twenty-seven stories, all with a theme of hope, each one is a testament to strength and resilience as the writers go through a wide range of struggles that various readers will relate to. With hope infused in each story, they give the reader strength as well. Each essay draws from different experiences - from addiction, to assault, to gender transition - the one thing they all have in common is that they're written from the heart and each essayist takes back their power and healing.
Sacred Hearts Rising: Finding Your Wings by Brenda Hammon is a well written and moving work. It is written in a way that makes for easy consumption and provides a great range of insights on strength and hope from which everyone, in all stages in life, will be able to take many helpful tips. It's certainly a book that will open many readers' eyes and hearts. Many of the stories use a minimalist approach that manages to capture the essence of each writer's thoughts and convey them to the reader, without weighing them down in a torrent of florid prose. Through the multitude of rich essays, no emotional stone is left unturned as each one seeks to encourage readers to look for a new path in life, one that is fulfilling. A powerful, evocative read.
