Through the Eyes Of the Soul by Sophie T. Henderson

Synopsis taken from Amazon

Psychologist and hypnotherapist Sophie T Henderson shares an anthology of her most revealing and unconventional cases. Through The Eyes Of The Soul places the reader alongside Sophie in the therapist's chair, making them a part of real-life healing sessions. All of these stories are based on cases that highlight phenomena that call to society for more acceptance of the untraditional. Through this book, you will read about past lifetime regressions that proved to be therapeutic. Henderson worked in neuroscience research before dedicating herself to therapy in 2006. She has been practicing ever since.

The Cover: 

The cover for this book is absolutely beautiful. A blue and green butterfly graces the cover with some simple written text for the title and author name. Just a really simple yet sweet cover. I would have picked this book based on the cover design and title.

The book itself is a very interesting read. Stepping out of my usual novel coverage, this book just sounded great from the synopsis. I really did enjoy it. Some of what Sophie said rang true with m, beliefs that I actually share. Some I had thought about but wasn’t really sure how the ball landed on the issue. Some of it was things that I hadn’t really even thought of. I had always wondered about what interesting stories might be revealed behind those doors and this book shared some awesomeness.

Sophie is genuine and her care for her clients is wonderful to see (and read). I hope anyone who goes into that field has the compassion that she shares. It is interesting that Sophie worked in neuroscience research before practicing psychology. Normally, science does not lead to metaphysical phenomena. Thank you Sophie for sharing a look into the mystical things occurring in your occupation. I highly recommend Through the Eyes of the Soul and give it 4 out of 5 crossbows.

Rocky Mountain Forever by Vivian Arend


Genre: Contemporary, Romance

Release Date:  February 16th 2021

Publisher: Arend Publishing Inc.

Format: E-book         

Series: Six Pack Ranch#12, Rocky Mountain House #17   

Source: Author in exchange for fair review

Goodreads Synopsis:

A return to the bestselling SIX PACK RANCH series by New York Times Bestselling Author Vivian Arend. While this book contains a stand-alone romance, it’s best read as a part of the series.


It’s never too late for love.

Years ago, Mark Coleman made the only possible choice and left Rocky Mountain House before he tore his family apart. When he hears the four clans—Six Pack, Whiskey Creek, Moonshine and Angel—are working together to create a memory book, Mark also discovers the one detail that finally triggers his return.

Because he’s not just coming back to the family. Now that Dana is free and ready to move on, Mark plans to give the only woman he’s ever loved all the devotion and happiness she deserves, no matter how much sweet-talking, or dirty talk, it takes.

Meanwhile, when a shocking truth is shared with the oldest of the Six Pack sons, Blake Coleman begins a journey of assessment. Can he really fill his father’s boots and be the leader his generation turns to for guidance?

With lots of visits with all your favourite Colemans, this is a celebration of love and the lessons learned along the way.

Warning: this book is full of happily-ever-afters. Lots of I love yous, lots of babies, lots of laughter and happy tears. Pretty much, readers familiar with the series have a ton of feel-good hours of reading ahead. If you want angst—this isn’t it.

My Thoughts:

The Cover:

What a delicious cover! The model for this book is gorgeous and I feel guilty for objectifying him (okay, slightly guilty, but it still counts!) The blue background with the mountains and clouds just sets the scene perfectly. 

The Story:

The way this book is written is different from any I have seen from Vivian. She may have used this style before, but I haven’t read all of her books. I have to say, I really liked it. I may not have recognized all of the characters, but the love the family shared is very obvious and very welcoming. This makes it a fun and easy read. My family is very small, but Vivian makes having a big family sound awesome. I have to admit, I am kinda jealous. The story is very entertaining, it flows wonderfully and gives me the warm fuzzies. 

The Characters:

As always, the characters are wonderfully written and makes the reader wish they were part of the family. Dana and Mark, my favorites this time around,  are sweet and wholesome, with Mark having those typical “man” characteristics- thinking he is going to ‘take care of Dana.’ There were quite a few characters in this book, but the small families were all sweet with their own things happening, combining to make a complete whole. It is a pretty dynamic whole that Vivian has created with the individual families coming together to make a complete ranch family. It is the better part of a huge project, after all the hard work of the planning and putting the puzzle pieces into play.

Was it Worth Reading?:

Rocky Mountain Forever is a sweet, light read with lots of feel good moments, lots of love, laughs, and lots of babies. I really enjoyed the book; it was a great distraction during quarantine and I highly recommend it to readers of contemporary romance. I give Rocky Mountain Forever 5 out of 5 crossbows.

The Forgotten Home Child by Genevieve Graham

The Home for Unwanted Girls meets Orphan Train in this unforgettable novel about a young girl caught in a scheme to rid England’s streets of destitute children, and the lengths she will go to find her way home—based on the true story of the British Home Children.


At ninety-seven years old, Winnifred Ellis knows she doesn’t have much time left, and it is almost a relief to realize that once she is gone, the truth about her shameful past will die with her. But when her great-grandson Jamie, the spitting image of her dear late husband, asks about his family tree, Winnifred can’t lie any longer, even if it means breaking a promise she made so long ago...

Love Spells and Other Disasters by Angie Barrett


Goodreads Synopsis:

I didn’t know when I wrote the first love spell that it would actually make things happen. Like, actually make people fall in love with each other…

How could I have known something like that? I mean, magic isn’t real, right?

But here’s the thing—the spell does work and so does the next one and the next one...and suddenly I’m getting a whole lot of attention from everyone at my high school. Me, Blend-into-the-Walls, Please-Let-Me-Introvert-in-Peace Rowan Marshall. And not only that, but I’ve also caught the attention of Luca Russo, a godlike, football-playing hottie who claims he likes me just the way I am. Ummm...

But as I’m about to learn, playing around with things you don’t understand means when things go wrong—like really, very awfully wrong—you don’t know how to fix them.
