Publisher's Summary

In May 2015, the Earth wrote me a letter and told me to start a blog! Since then, I received more letters from the Earth which are encouraging, uplifting, and challenging. During our growing ecological crisis, this audiobook provides a fresh voice of Gaia/God, who calls us to slow down and take time to appreciate the miraculous nature of all and to awaken to needed changes to avoid environmental destruction.

Simply Delightful

A fresh and beautiful look into the wondrous miracle of our Mother Earth that provides readers a new perspective of hope and comfort in a world with so much chaos. The soothing narration of Syrena Harris and the enchanting story written by Nancy Flinchbaugh perfectly combined how human emotions of sadness, joy and laughter can be a beautiful gift that we need to cherish and embrace ever day.

Time to listen, react

Fellow Higher Ground Books & Media author Nancy Flinchbaugh came up with an intriguing concept for a book. Since I was planning a road trip from Ohio to upstate New York, I decided to load the audio version of Letters from the Earth. In May 2015, the Earth “wrote” her a letter and told her to start a blog! Since then, she received more periodic letters from the Earth which encouraged, uplifted, and challenged her. The messages provided a fresh voice of Gaia/God, who calls her — and us — to slow down and take time to appreciate the miraculous nature of all, and to awaken to needed changes to avoid environmental destruction. While I don’t personally share her ecological doomsday passion, I do agree we all have a role to play as we strive for proper stewardship of the earth. I did like the format. Each of the 24 letters in the book was preceded by the circumstances of the day — concerning a garden party; about darkness in winter; at the beach; encouraging her to continue listening; and about a walk in the arboretum, for example. These established the back story for Earth’s letters and Nancy’s response. It was a nice blend. Nancy’s words — from the messages she received to her response — flow freely with emotion. You can sense her passion without getting hit over the head with it. You can easily recognize her deep relationships with family, friends and Mother Earth, giving you, as a reader, a similar relationship with people and places you do not personally know. Through Nancy, you become vested in them. The only negative I found — and this is not her fault as much as the medium (audiobook) — was many of the responses blended together. After awhile, the audiobook became white noise in the background while driving. {Actually, that a common complaint I have about audiobooks in general.} I suspect an actual book in hand might remedy this.
