In today’s society with all that’s going on with unemployment, the housing market and the economy in general, this is a great book for people who may have lost their jobs, homes, etc. Not to mention an all-around good book for anyone seeking guidance on life in general. Good for the soul. Excellent book, and very well written. It’s obvious that a lot of time and effort went into the research, and the entire book applies to everyday life, no matter where you are in life at this point. I would recommend this book to anyone. It makes so much sense!

I have worked with this author but was not aware of her situation. I am surprised that she turned out to be the wonderful parent and person she is after such a horrid childhood. I found the guidance she offered to be so loving,thoughtful and wise and can only hope that the children of other parents can find the time to offer such guidance. I will now refer to her as “Dali Velinda.” Thank you for sharing this story with us.

It is my distinct pleasure to have read the first draft of Velinda Peyton’s new book This River Called Life, A Letter to My Children. She writes in such a clear, informative manner and is inspirational in her encouragement of others to pursue their dreams. Consequently, I have started a business with my husband after reading her book because I also have found my passion. In addition, she tunes in so well to many of the longings we all have, in every aspect of our lives. One particular passage that moves me is her description of coming across a deer in a remote area of Colorado. Her description is so poetic and moving that I feel as if I am actually there with her in the moment. I often find myself wanting to reread certain passages because the writing is simply that good. Fantastic job, Velinda!
