The Dust of Hope by Judy Croome (Book Review #1178)

Advertisements

The dust of hope is a religious, inspirational poetry book filled with runes and Norse mythology. Each section has a beautiful poem and deals with the emotions we all face during these challenging times. The global pandemic has definitely forced us with changes and has brought anxiety for everyone.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The premise and dynamic of the citations are enjoyable to read. The poems are heartfelt and meaningful. If you are into poetry and enjoy reading about the sound of your soul, then this book is for you.

The author has an impressive skill in penmanship. I believe there is a lot more to see from her. This book is helpful to read and is useful to have at this level because of everything going on in the world.

I recommend this book to poem readers.
