I was a client when J. R. Lyle wrote the eulogy for my loved one's homegoing.  I was blown away by the calming word choice, the way she captured our sentiments, and her enduring message of love.  She knows her way around words and I am here for the first book release!

Praise & Reviews

This incredible book of poetry spoke to me as if the author’s words leaped off of the page and touched my soul. What I enjoyed most was the way the words were relatable and evoked emotions that I completely identified with, as if they were an extension of my thoughts—-some thoughts that I have longed suppressed. I feel as if Lyle’s collection of poems has something for everyone, something that in each of us that we can identify within ourselves.
It is with true admiration that I have for Lyle’s innate ability to put pen to paper and allow a sequence of words to transcend and consequently awaken, transform and even empower the reader.

I thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful book of poetry! I could even relate to many of the things written. One of the poems made me cry as if I were feeling the authors emotions. Very good read!
