Life Between the Words by Nolan Holloway Book Review


Life Between The Words brings together heartbreak, grief, hope and determination. Blind faith binds these pages together. These poems explore the human condition loudly and expressively, through the key events that define us – birth, growth and aspirations, conflict and mortality. They question the moral and philosophical natures of duality. Can good exist without evil? As you devour these verses you will get an insight into an altruistic and loving conscience battling all too-human evil demons. And it will open your mind wide. Poignant and reflective, at times hard to decipher between the sharp air of resignation or the soft breath of forgiveness, though both equally important.These words are uplifting and inspirational. They tell of a life that learnt to trust and believe in second chances, along with the power and importance of self-preservation, to let go and live to see a better today.-L.J. Diaz, Author

Queenie’s Review:

Life Between the Words is a collection of poems that is about grief, hope, sadness, and life changing situations. This is an inspirational and uplifting book. The tone of this book is understanding of life events where the good or bad. The imagery of the words were vivid. The title Life Between the Words meant to me is in life you have words that will help you to heal and be strong. The poem “Life Between the Words” is a summary of what the author is saying in the entire book. Some of the poems were spiritual and I love the concept of that. These poems were intriguing and interesting. The poem “Shine the Feeling”, I can relate to. Truthful. The love you have for your daughter was so real. I felt it in the poems. The poem “ Restoration to Repair was all about me. I had to read it twice because that’s my life. WOW!!! I love how you gave ode to your mother and your brother. That was a nice touch. In the poem called “That Surprised Me” the line that says, “Maturity sometimes does not bring wisdom” was on point. OMG that is so true.. I thought the poem called “Use Crayons to Color Thoughts”, is so true right now for what is happening in our society. All colors are beautiful! This seems like a book collection of different seasons for your life where the sad or happy, glad or bad, conflict to resolution. The poems “Why?”, “Hardness”, and “A Word to Marinate”, are poems that depict what is going on in our society right now. We need peace and love and not hate! I’m glad I got to read some wonderful poetry by this author. I am very impressed. Thanks for being transparent. I recommend this collection to all readers who loved poetry. You will not be disappointed. I give this book of life 5 stars.

From the Author
This book took much longer to write than the others. Because of the sadness of the loss of my brother and daughter the flow was much slower. But I feel I have conveyed the feelings of my loss and hope the reader can relate and heal from my experience. –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author
This, my third book of poetry has been a difficult endeavor. The poetic flow slowed to a stop and I wondered if my gift was gone. Dealing with the loss of my brother and daughter brought some many emotions to my life. But it has also been fulfilling, paying tribute to people that I care and cared for dearly. Life Between the Words is exactly that, living and writing about it. –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
