    A Journey of Hope

    Beautiful and powerful are the first words which come to mind. Bryr opens up her heart, bears all and takes us on a journey of sorrow, honesty and hope. From a literary standpoint each poem is successful in its own way; I found the rhythm and rhyme gentle and yet powerful, even humorous at times and immensely satisfying. On a thematic level, each poem speaks powerfully as it deals with human emotions and responses either to sorrow or to God’s hand at work in nature or to that unbearable place of not knowing whether change for the better will come … ‘perhaps’. There are 12 poems in all; some of them gave me glimpses into Bryr’s broken heart. Other poems transported me to another world, to Australia with all its morning glories and noises. Who would have known such animals existed! Each poem is introduced by a journal entry which helps set the background; and even though the book takes us on a journey through grief, the reader is never left feeling lost in despair. The majority of the poems, to me, seemed to usher in hope, hope that in God there is help. At times the poems reminded of David’s Psalms and his honest heart crying out to God. At other times I was reminded of Job’s contemplations who asked the question ‘why?’ and though he never received an answer, he nonetheless kept looking to God for help. I was inevitably moved and filled with joy to read the final poem where God in His love, in Christ Jesus, came to Bryr’s rescue at a time when she called out to Him with all her heart – but with an honest heart, free from masquerades. It is ultimately a true story of light breaking through at the end of a very dark night and will no doubt be a source of comfort to others going through their own trials, but who nonetheless have ears to hear what the Spirit of God may wish to speak to them.
