I took my time reading this work because I found it very thought provoking.

On several occasions I was transported back in time to when a previous partner and I visited a friend who was in a coma for several weeks before her husband gave the go ahead to have the life support terminated.

On other occasions I found myself drifting back to when my son was in a coma as a result of a hit and run, and again to his months of recovery as he learned to walk again.

And again to my own experiences of astral travel. This story takes astral travel to a whole new level.

Despite my own deviance, I still found the story most engrossing. I was looking for something different to read and while providing me just that, this story did not disappoint.

In addition to its wonderful book cover, The Scarlet Ribbon is original and well-written with thought-provoking ideology.

(We were thrilled to receive this review from Kevin Cooper!)


When a dirty blue car mows Maggie down outside her local supermarket, she becomes trapped in the nightmare world of a coma patient.

In this very different world, she manages to rescue an abused and neglected child. But when it looks as though she will finally wake up, she cannot bear the thought of leaving the child behind.

But is this other world real, or was she just dreaming? And if it is real, can she help this child?

 I love exploring all the wonderful writing possibilities and trying something new. I make all these plans in my head, knowing I am probably wasting my time, but I can’t help it.

For someone who loathes computers with a passion, and I suspect this is mutual, I have managed to master the beast to some extent, but there is still so much I don’t know. As long as there is life in this old body, I will keep on trying, and you never know, our books might just be a little famous one day!

It won’t be for the lack of trying, trust me!

  1. This sounds like a powerful and unusual story. What a subject to tackle! Congrats to Anita on Kevin ‘s wonderful review. From the other books I’ve read by her, I know she always tells an engrossing tale!

    • Just tried the Twitter button, and it seems to be working fine, Deb. And for whatever reason, the Facebook button sometimes only shows up on the Home page. You can read the post from there, too, and send it to FB from there, but it doesn’t always want to work on the separate post page. I haven’t been able to do anything about it. Sorry. Our pages don’t always play nice with each other. I can almost never respond on yours, and have no clue why. 😦 It’s a pain, I know, either way, but I haven’t been able to figure it out.

      • Lol, I left you a tip on your fb comment. If you go into your ‘sharing’ in your dashboard you can see all your share buttons and if they’re working. I know. This techy stuff gets sooooooooooo in our way. ❤

        • As I mentioned on your FB post, it IS set to show everywhere, and it shows on the Home Page, but only intermittently on the post page. There is a nice, blank GAP right where it’s supposed to be. Once in a while, it pops up there, but as often as not, it doesn’t. I don’t know of anything else to try. 😦 Sorry.
