[This new review was just posted on Amazon this week. Another 5-star review for Messages from Mother…. Earth Mother. Thank you, Harold Bates!]
I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Mare Cromwell at an expo in Cumberland, Maryland. After speaking for just a few minutes, she was kind enough to offer me a copy of her book.
I was completely enchanted from the start. What I did was I read a chapter a day, and just like the main character, Sarah, I felt like I was off to the Sacred Grove to meet with Mother. There is a certain Narnia-esque quality to Mare’s writing that I found to be inspiring — and I felt like a little kid again as Mother Earth herself lovingly tried to set humanity straight as to how they should relate with Her.
Like the Narnia books, this book would make a wonderful educational tool for young children. And like the Narnia books, the timeless simplicity of it speaks to the child in each one of us. I loved it and can’t wait to return there again in the future.
