A Worthy Legacy - Book Review.


A Worthy Legacy, by Tomi Akinyanmi

Check out the Web-site here.

Brief Summary:

The Harmattan wind scorches across Nigeria, and an old man lies dying. His community gathers to pay its respects; their haunting songs echoing in the warm twilight. Around his bed his family is gathered and they listen as he speaks his last words. Yet in the face of death this old man doesn't talk of regrets, neither does he talk of petty grievances, instead he talks softly about life; how to survive, how to be happy and how to achieve self-respect I was deeply moved and impressed by the wealth of knowledge and insight from this beautiful simple story.

My Thoughts:

The book has a striking appearance with a rich quality through out the whole book. Quality paper, artistry, and yet the words are simple creating a rich reading experience. Reading this book was a spiritual experience for me. I immediately thought of all those that I love with whom I want to share the book.

I recommend this book for everyone living on this planet. I suggest you pick up a copy or two as I know you will want to pass it on to a child, niece, friend or co-worker.

The story over flows with wise words and practical advice for each and every one of us. I won't share too much more. I hope you are as pleasantly surprised as I was. I feel peace in my heart and mind after reading the book. I feel blessed to have received my copy from the author.

Thank you Tomi

There will be blog tours this June and July. I will link up and post more details as I get them.

This sounds like a truly beautiful book. The cover immediately gets your attention too. I'll have to look for this. It sounds inspiring and I think it would also make a nice gift for some of my family who are going through tough times. Thanks for your review.
