Confessions of an Instinctively Mutinous Baby Boomer: And Her Parable of the Tomato Plant
by Marsha Roberts is an astounding work of literary genius. I freely admit to being a baby boomer and have had my mega ups and downs, but what separates me from Marsha is her life-affirming belief in God and that God is there for her every step of the way, even when someone has removed the last few steps and is waiting for her to fall. Marsha uses her unique voice and sense of humor, which I may add is wonderfully spread throughout the book, to send us on a fantastic journey, her private journey that we call life, full of heartfelt sorrow, uplifting joy and miracles that helped her overcome the dark moments in her tumultuous life.
Each chapter or parable is so entertaining and full of faith, brimming with Marsha's soul to the point I had tears streaming down my face on more than one occasion, only to find myself laughing a few pages further. What might have been a mundane story of every day life has been transformed into a documentary worthy of an Oscar.
I highly recommend this FIVE STAR family drama to everyone who might find there is more to life than just living it. A must read.
