"All in God’s Time, My Sons" published by @ireadiwrite
Wow is the best way to describe this book, a collection of poems by Geoff Moeller.
I met the publisher of the book on Friday morning at the Starbucks close to my office. Michelle and I had worked together in her past when she worked within the retail industry as an analyst. I had always enjoyed her company, so it was great when I caught up with her on . When I found her on LinkedIn, I noticed that she had a website attached to her profile, called ireadiwrite publishing. I took a peak and was completely intrigued by her page and what she was doing that I had to meet up with her and see what was going on. I am so happy I did. It was great catching up and even though I know she is probably going to want to kill me after this post; as I told her not to worry as “I NEVER review books on the blog!”
That was until this book (which she is feeling guilty about me buying over coffee – get over it – I love the book!!).
The book is All in God’s Time, My Sons – reflections on the death of my children.
The book was written by a Father who lost 2 of his boys in a car accident and had one of his boys paralyzed during the same accident.
An absolute tragedy that occurred on November 29, 2008. Geoff and his wife lost 2 of their boys on that day; Andrew Joseph Moeller who was just over 9 years old and Mathew Benedict Moeller who was just over 6 years old. The same accident paralyzed their brother Karl from the chest down.
In this book of short poems, Geoff writes about his kids, his feelings, his religion and his faith. He writes to heal himself (if he can ever do that) and he writes to hopefully help others in similar situations of their own or of people close to them who may be suffering huge loss. He is a true inspiration and his strength is incredible. He will change the way you look at your life, your family and the friends around you. Life can be cruel and brutally short to some, cherish the moments that you have with all close to you as you just never know.
The book will not be for everyone. I found it sad and yet uplifting at the same time. I can not imagine what this family has endured. I think many will find it too much and I think that is ok. Read it slowly and it small parts if need be, I will have to read it this way as well as it is too much for one sitting.
My prayers are with this family and the 2 boys who have left us.
I would like to thank Michelle for introducing me to the book and I would like to thank her for assisting in publishing this for Geoff Moeller. You picked a good book and knowing you, you will pick many other gems. I think you are going to do really well in this industry. Good on you.
After making me cry because of this book – coffee is on you next time!
I also promise that I won’t review any more books since I told you that I would not do this; I just couldn’t help it on this book.
