Guest Post Book Review: The Promise of Stardust

Today, we have another guest post! I have to say, the feedback I received from everyone who offered to help me out while I'm in transit has been so incredibly supportive. I love that I have friends no matter where I move now. Today's guest post is a book review of sorts from Erica of Looking to the Stars. Erica is so sweet (and clearly gorgeous), and we almost had the chance to meet while I was in D.C., but unfortunately, traveling through a big city with two kids and a grumpy husband does not leave me with a lot of free social time. (boo) Next time, I'll leave them at the hotel. Anyway...here's Erica!

Hello everyone! A big thank you to Jessica for having me here today. My little corner of the world can be found over at Looking to the Stars. I write about all things that make me happy.

I love talking about my family and friends; movies and television; and

BOOKS! There is one book in particular that I would love to share with you.

The Promise of Stardust, by Priscille Sibley

I’m not going to lie – I judge books by their covers. This book cover has all of my favorite colors in it and there’s a heart and it’s sparkly! Here is what the book jacket says:

Matt Beaulieu was two year old the first time he held Elle McClure in his arms, seventeen when he first kissed her under a sky filled with shooting stars, and thirty-three when they wed. Now in their late thirties, the deeply devoted couple has everything – except that baby they’ve always wanted.

When a tragic accident leaves Elle brain-dead, Matt is devastated. Though he cannot bear losing her, he knows his wife, a thoughtful and adventurous scientist, feared only one thing – a slow death. Just before Matt agrees to remove Elle from life support, the doctors discover that she is pregnant. Now what was once a clear-cut decision becomes an impossible choice. Matt knows how much this child would have meant to Elle. While there is no certainty her body can sustain the pregnancy, he is sure Elle would want the baby to have a chance. Linney, Matt’s mother, believes her son is blind with denial. She loves Elle, too, and insists that Elle would never want to be kept alive by artificial means, no matter what the situation.

Divided by the love they share, driven by principle, Matt and Linney fight for what each believes is right, and the result is a disagreement that escalates into a controversial legal battle, ultimately going beyond one family and one single life.

The Promise of Stardust hit me to the core with every page. It goes back and forth from the present day to when Matt & Elle were growing up together.

Before reading this book I had never heard of an “Advanced Directive” or a “Living Will.” That’s the big nut in this book that everyone is arguing over. I had never really thought about what I would want done. Ya know, if I was not able to made decisions on my own. It really started making me think about who I would want to make my decisions for me. I am already an organ donor, that’s settled. It’s definitely something to think about.

Well everyone, that's all I've got :) I definitely recommend The Promise of Stardust if you are interested in a story about doing whatever it takes for the one you love!

Thank you again, Jessica, for having me over. Come check out Looking to the Stars. I would love to have you!

This is definitely being added to my list. I love books that involved real life controversies and issues that are not black and white!

My name is Sandra and i want to testify of the good work done by a faithful Dr Osoba, a spell caster. in my life i never thought there is such thing as spiritual intercession. my problem started nine months back when the father of my kids started putting up some strange behavior, i never knew he was having an affair outside our matrimonial home. it dawn on me on that faithful day 19th of April 21st 4:23pm when he came to the house to pick his things that was when i knew that situation has gotten out of hand and he then told me he was quitting the marriage which i have built for over five years, i was confused and dumbfounded i called on family and friends but to no avail. two months after i started having problem with my kids welfare rent-age and all of it, i really went through hell. until a day i was browsing on the internet and i happen to meet a spell caster i never believed on this but i needed my man back so i gave the spell caster my problem at first i never trusted him so i was just doing it but you know a problem shared is half solved after a week my husband called me telling me that he his coming back home and that was all. now we are living happily and i still do contact him on this email: osobaspelltemple@yahoo.com

When I married my husband I was already pregnant and so I didn't have a job. He had a really good job though so I was able to stay home and take care of our son when it was born. When we had our second child we moved to a bigger house, but then strange things started to happen. Things would fly off the walls and doors would slam at night. Our oldest son talked about seeing figures and hearing voices. We consulted a medium and they said the house was haunted. After living there about a year more with only minor occurrences we moved out. That was when the bad luck started to happen. Everything started to fail, with my husband's job, our money and our luck in general. I went back to the same medium and they told me that a spirit had followed me and placed a curse upon me for disturbing it and not being respectful in the previous house. He tried to remove it but was unable. The misfortune kept going on and getting more severe as I tried to search out someone to break the curse. But when I found Dr.Azonto spell he finally did it. Things started turning around almost immediately after he cast the spell and have been great from there! This was really a miracle for us, thank you . azontotemple@ yahoo. com spell from the bottom of my heart!

I want to say thank you thank you thank you to Ancient Dr osoba spell temple for everything so far. To everyone who doesn't believe in spell, I was one of those ones at first. I wasn't quite sure if I wanted to do this since I've tried others so-called spells casters and they did not work and was a waste of my time and money. However, when I read through the testimonials of other people at this website and after I talked osoba who answered all my questions and was very nice about everything, I decided to give it a try. I figured it would be my last try to get my guy back. So my story is that I was at my office when the guy I am in love with told me that he wasn't in love with me and never will be and that he didn't want to speak or see me again, especially since he was talking to this other girl. When I talked to Dr osoba, he let me know which spells would be most appropriate for me and I chose the ones that was to get him back to me and stay with me and want to marry me.As soon as he started on the spells, my guy came back into my life! It was a miracle to me and I'm so thankful for that. Things have been going well, and pretty much according to what Dr osoba said would happen. He's always there when you need him and that's also after the spell is done. I'm still waiting for the spells to completely manifest, but with all that has happened so far I'm very happy because given only four months ago in March, if you asked me or my friends if I would have anticipated how things were right now no one would believe it!

Hello everyone my name is Cindy John, i just want to share my experience and testimony here.. i was married for 7 years to my husband and all of a sudden, another woman came into the picture and he started hating me and he was abusive. but i still loved him with all my heart and wanted him at all cost then he filed for divorce my whole life was turning apart and i didn't know what to do he moved out of the house and abandoned the kids that we have, so someone told me about trying spiritual means to get my husband back and introduced me to a spell caster name Dr Adagba adagbaspiritualtemple@gmail.com so i decided to try it reluctantly. although i didn't believe in all those things then when he did the special prayers and spell, after 2 days, my husband came back and was pleading for my forgiveness that he had realized his mistakes I just couldn't believe it anyway we are back together now and we are happy in case anyone needs this man, his email address adagbaspiritualtemple@gmail.com or adagbaspiritualtemple@yahoo.com his spells is for a better life. http://adagbaspiritualtem9.wixsite.com/mysite or call him via: +2349057354407
