Book Description:
Annalise of the Verdant Hills is one of the most delightful protagonists to skip through the pages of literature since Dorothy landed in Oz. Join Annalise and her two walking, talking wondersheep as they travel to ever more outlandish places and meet outrageous and enlightening folk on their journey to discover interconnectedness in a seemingly disconnected world. Discover with them how just one person can be the start of the change we all strive for. A book for all ages, for all time: wonderful, wacky, and bursting with truth!




My Review:

Annalise is imaginative and wise beyond her years. She wanders away from home, following a mysterious light. It leads her into what appears to be an alternate world. The reader is left trying to figure out where she is, and why. At first it appears to be a dream world. Later in the book, however, it is revealed that not everything is what it appears. 

Annalise is on a spiritual journey. The story has a certain simplicity that helps smooth over the complexity of exploring your spirituality. There are numerous important life lessons within this book. The situations that Annalise finds herself in help her learn to trust her inner wisdom. Her eyes are opened to the true appearance of the characters that she meets. We as the readers are to understand that our Earthly life has veiled our view of others. 

It took me a few chapters to really grasp the full meaning of the storyline. Once I understood what the book was about, it was an easier read for me. I’ll admit I was a little thrown off by the child-like fantasy of it all at first. I actually read it a second time just to let it sink in. Six Weeks To Yehidah is a wonderful book for adults of all ages who would like to explore their spirituality without the religious aspect. There is no preaching or Bible thumping...just a girl on a journey trying to find a deeper meaning to the life she is leading, but also learning how to choose to live a more meaningful life after her adventure. 

Six Weeks To Yehidah is available in paperback and Kindle edition on Amazon.

I found this book to be unique, as if a mixture of The Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland, both of which had hidden meaning and purpose in their writing.

It was refreshing to read a book, which both adults and children can enjoy, that takes you on a fantasy ride, spiritual journey and entertains. What characters! This reader would love nothing more than to see this book in schools and libraries and, be still my heart, a major motion picture for all to enjoy
