Today is Rave Reviews Book Club’s Pay It Forward Day, so I am shining a light on fellow RRBC Member Patricia Green.
Patricia is a book reviewer, blogger, editor, publisher, and budding author. She also serves on the RRBC Board.
In her own words…
Life always existed for me, more real at times, through the books I read and their characters than the life I’ve lived.
Once I began reading, books became my best friends as my family moved frequently. I learned at a young age that books would never leave and were never left behind.
As an adult, books were an escape from a life that I often found intolerable. Books let me still believe that good things could happen and happily-ever-after was always possible!
Books taught me to love learning, God, and ultimately myself.
Let’s sit down together, share a cup of splendid hot coffee in friendship. Then, please select a book from the authors featured here that will help you escape to that place where only you ~ and your favorite characters ~ exist.

Patricia’s WIP: WHERE THE HEART GROWS
It was difficult, and very sad, to see my life laid out on paper. The timeline covered the front and back of a 36″ x 24″ poster board and wound around it like a steep mountain switchback.
The memories brought back by black lines on paper . . .
He dragged me down the stairs by my hair. I remember giving up. I was so tired, physically and emotionally. The fight had gone out of me. I’m certain if one had looked into my eyes they were empty. I was already gone.
He dragged me to a standing position, which I could barely hold in my weakness. Peering into his eyes I saw evil. I saw death. My own. My daughter’s.
“Remember, no matter what happens,” he leaned down, whispering in my ear, “no matter what happen, remember how much I’ve loved you!”
I stood there stunned. He loved me? He loved me? How could this be called love!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! You can help in paying it forward by visiting the RRBC site, and supporting the other blog hosts.
