Thank you for a wonderful 5- star review!


THANK YOU “Dimmy,” an amazon book reviewer, you captured the essence of my character “Annie” perfectly! My smile is blended with tears of gratitude…

“I read this book a couple of months ago. It is the story of a little girl who was born in the 17th century in North Eastern United States, a time of trouble, war, fury, cold, hunger, suffering, sorrow and a lot of joy too. The little girl seemed to be immune to most of the negative human emotions that trouble human beings. She was brought up lovingly and with care by her grandma, she having lost her parents as she was born. But having been blessed with a sixth sense and the ability to perceive things which are not in the dimensions we human beings know, she was far advanced for her age, time and space. She was well versed in native medicine as was her grandma.
Times were hard but Annie, the little girl grew up as a Blythe spirit. She was physically handicapped but mentally she had the development of people far beyond other human beings. In addition she could speak to animals and nature.
This story is about love, and hope and courage and survival.
It gives us hope that in spite of all ills and disabilities, man can still live and live well. Deborah Bowman the writer writes in a clear language and has done her research into the time period well. She has tried to use the language of the times and that increases the authenticity of the content.”

Kindle Edition: Pockets of Chaos: Poems and Stories by Linda L. Labin 

Linda L. Labin has it all in her latest book, “Pockets of Chaos: Poems and Stories.” Do you want to laugh until you’re about to split a gut? “Shakespeare’s Generic Bar and Grill.” Then, you turn the page and sadness fills your heart: “Daddy Died.” Or you feel the fear and rage at the events of: “May 4, 1970.” You ponder with Linda: “The Existential Questions.” And this does not even begin to scratch the surface!

An incredible sense of humor. None like I’ve ever seen before, and I make fun and create word-puns on just about everything! “English is Quirky,” Linda tells us, and she is so right!

This book covers every emotion ever dreamed of by humankind and probably a few more thrown in that are uniquely Labin. She talks (yes! you can literally hear her speaking!) about everything from very informational heritage and genetics, to aging, to love, to loss, to gloss and glimmer, to stories and poems that will brighten your day, jog your memory, teach you, reach you, beseech you, search your mind in ways you never thought possible.

Hilarious, inspirational, frightening, nostalgic with wit, wisdom, endearing nonsense, based on her incredible life and experiences, both in fact and fiction.

Written in lovely little snatches that say so much … perfect for the beach or on a cold winter night before retiring; and the best way I know to greet every day! This, of course, would be the second, third, fourth, fifth time you read it because you have to gulp it down the first few times, not letting go of one single bite or losing the savor in each yummy morsel. You just can’t stop reading “Pockets of Chaos” again and again and again and again. This is a book to love and cherish for your whole life, just as it reflects a full life of honesty, integrity, and empathy.
