A book review, “Life at the end of the Rainbow” by Jenny Andrews

Life at the end of the Rainbow, by Jenny Andrews


Poetry is like art, its beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

But, while art can be very subjective, poetry often has a special meaning, to both the writer and then the reader.  In turn, for each of us readers, a poem will have a different meaning, some will see what it represents, and others may not.

And, whilst I have not read a lot of poetry over the years, that changed recently when I subscribed to several blogs and discovered this whole new class of literature.

This view was strengthened when I came across a volume of poems by Jenny Andrews, titled Life at the End of the Rainbow.

For me, each poem is an insight into an extraordinary life, where the author sometimes lays bare those raw emotions, which, at times, we will find ourselves drawing parallels.

In a sense, I think we have all been to this mythical place called, The End of the Rainbow, and sometimes need a gentle reminder that it took a lot of ups and downs to get there.

This is, to my mind, a remarkable piece of work.

I, for one, can’t wait to see what the next stage of the journey will be.

  1. Thank you, Charles for promoting my poetry book. I’ve had a few sales! Yay! I’ve written another one, but I haven’t put it on Kindle due to some extra revisions I want to do. It’s available on Amazon. It’s called “Spaces Between the Pause.” I’ve also written a novel called “Bully Another Day.” The main character was as victim of bullying and a police detective a decade later tries to connect some murders to her. He thinks she took revenge on the parents of those who bully her in high school. I’m waiting to re-read my final draft before I promote it on Kindle. It;s available in paperback, though. I know it will be better to also put it on Kindle, but I want to go back and make sure I’ve caught all possible inconsistencies and errors. During this pandemic, I’ve actually had time to sit down and write. I’ll let you know when both my new poetry book and my novel are available on Kindle. Have a wonderful week ahead.
