About the Book:
Gathering Pearls is a collection of cultured poems abounding with grace. A
delicate thread of wisdom and sensitivity permeates Susan Maree's poetry.
Gathering Pearls will take you to your soul, make you weep, and make you smile.
The poet's words emanate from the depth of her soul, as she often states that
her poems are "whispers from God." When not written by way of divine
inspiration, these poems are a direct result of Susan Maree's struggles and
triumphs. The author confesses that for her, "writing poetry creates order out
of chaos and transforms obstacles into blessings."
By reading this magnificent collection, you may discover emotions that perhaps
you were unaware of before. Gathering Pearls promises to calm, encourage,
strengthen, enlighten, make you laugh and bring hope where there is despair.
Readers may also look forward to a humorous book of poetry for children to be
published in the future. For now, as Susan makes her literary debut, it is her
greatest aspiration that you enjoy and appreciate Gathering Pearls.
