From the book's back cover:
On our journeys through life there are numerous events we can remember as turning points. Falling and fracturing her hip, and then going through surgery to place two rods in her bones was an experience that forced Barbara Sinor to travel an unknown spiritual path. This experience took Barbara beyond her regular means of living to the necessity of exploring emotions and thoughts in foreign regions. While Barbara was confined to a rehabilitation facility to heal and recover, her inner journey took her through territories of fear, doubt, pain, guilt, and other paths she needed to conquer. She writes, “Sitting in my bed, and later in a wheelchair, I clutched a purple pen and matching Journal a friend brought me. It was then that I became aware of words sweeping through my mind.” Barbara began to write daily and shares with us her inspirational insights and musings as she began to heal her body and soul. Regardless of your personal struggle, the lessons in Inspirational Musings offers the reader the courage to move forward, and the knowledge that any personal challenge can lead to transformative growth.
“Exquisite! How so like Barbara Sinor to use her time in rehab to delve inside herself to explore and expand her soul journey as her body heals, and then to share the treasure she unearths with the world. Inspirational Musings is to be savored page by page, insight by insight, bit of wisdom by bit of wisdom. Enjoy!”

Inspirational Musings received another generous advance review! This one is from a fellow author, Diana Raab. Enjoy reading her kind words and watch for the book to release in just a few months!
“Inspirational Musings is a beautiful, compassionate companion book, a precious gem to be used as a lifeline on those gloomy days when one needs a boost. This work offers poignant musings for those going through any kind of emotional and physical trauma, offering insight and strength. Inspirational Musings is a soft and poignant reminder that we must grieve at our own rate, slow down, practice mindfulness and compassion, enjoy nature, and allow life to unfold.
Sinor’s wisdom and kindness illuminate every page. She reminds us that while suffering is a part of life’s journey, love and compassion are our higher powers. The book is a heartwarmer, and a reminder that healing, no matter what kind, is a form of awakening. This book is a blessing to whoever picks it up and one that deserves to be read over and over again.”

An heartfelt review!
I am so honored to have received such a heartfelt and detailed review from renown author of The Invitation, Oriah "Mountain Dreamer" House. Oriah's writing has always been a favorite of mine! I believe her review of Inspirational Musings: Insights for Those in Recovery captures my thoughts nicely.
"We all have times when physical challenges pin us to the spot. Sometimes we squirm, sometimes we relax, and sometimes--if we are very fortunate--we use the time as Barbara Sinor has, jotting down contemplative thoughts stirred by the stillness. Drawing on words from many teachers and adding her own honest stories and reflection during a time of convalescence, Barbara offers us a small book to dip into when we want to go deeper, when we need to find healing for this moment. Inspirational Musings is a book to slip into your pocket or bag as you travel the journey that is taken by human beings."

Inspirational Musing: Insights for Those in Recovery has received another great advance review! I am honored to receive such praise for this booklet...
"Reading this booklet of insights reached up and grabbed me within the first few pages. I experienced a profound deep awakening and inspiration of some buried feelings I didn’t know existed within my being. All the quotes within Inspirational Musings bring a divine influence, and the personal poetry of Dr. Barbara Sinor inspire us to heal and stay positive. The last quote by renown Stephen Hawking moved me deeply and my being once again saw the Light out of the darkness. Thank you again Barbara for sharing your insights with us."

Introducing my upcoming book
Inspirational Musings: Insights for Those in Recovery.
As I sat in my small recovery room, I pondered my life, my emotions, and my future. As I meditated, it became clear that I needed to write my feelings and insights down in a journal. This journal became my outlet, my companion. As I sat healing from a hip fracture and subsequent surgery in a rehabilitation center, my thoughts roamed to topics of Fear, Grief, Trust, Friendship, Gratitude, and many others. My musings continued once home while in a wheelchair; the journal became an inspirational booklet for others healing and in recovery. Watch for it to be released in Fall 2018.

I was recently interviewed by Donna Seebo, from the international Delphi Broadcasting Show about my newest book "Finding Destiny." Donna has interviewed me a few times over the years on my other books, but this time we were both delighted to be talking about my first fiction book!
Donna Seebo Show
Donna explained how much she enjoyed reading my first novel about two women living in different countries with more than fifty years a part. She easily told me how she appreciated the book's underlying themes and how, "...the words were weaved in a tapestry of poetic pose that guided her to search deeper into the lives of the two heroines."
