We have a new celebration on the calendar. INTERNATIONAL AUTHORS' DAY on July 18/15. Celebrate your favourite authors. My favourite authors are: Maya Angelou who fills me with inspirational quotes, Terri McMillan who keeps me laughing, Eckhart Tolle who keeps me grounded, Nicholas Sparks who pulls at my heart strings, and many more.
I recently discovered an author, Bronwyn Elsmore through a Facebook group, Book Review Emporium. Her novel, Every Five Minutes is a must read and I want to introduce her to all on this blog hop.

When I started to read this novel I thought this is not a story just a never ending poem and not my type of poem. Just a woman wondering the streets describing stuff. This looks like a two star story to me. Then I continued reading and the story picked up pace.
Boy was I in for a treat. This was a sweet, tender love story filled with caring and understanding. It was educational and entertaining in that I learned another way to flesh out a character without giving a whole bunch of descriptives.
The author was so skilful in letting the reader understand the characters, their feelings and emotions. The protagonist was so withdrawn but the tender moments with her lover added so much clarity to the couple that by midway this story had turned into a five star in my books.
When I read “With deft fingers you reached inside me and with your words, your caring, reset the bones, rejoined the connective tissue that had come apart, and cleared the blockages so the life-sustaining fluids could flow unimpeded.”
Wow! That was a five star for me. That did it. I was hooked and had to finish the whole book.
And although I knew where the ending was going, I still had a lump in my throat when I got there and I did not want the story to end. I still wanted more.
It is such a life altering moment when a loved one understands you to the core and you both just get it.
