New Beginning - - - More Reflections by Dolly Braida

"New Beginning, from the author of From Sad Beginnings to Happy Endings, is a beautifully written book that shines life the North Star, leading the reader to a better place!

"Dolly's blessed goals are to relieve people of pain and suffering and to help make the world a better place, free from hate and prejudice.   The culmination of her life's learning and wisdom is found in her brilliant new book, New Beginnings, a tribute to humankind's strength and spiritualism.

"New Beginnings refers to renewal, cleansing, awakening, growth and learning.    Dolly includes a wide variety of subject matter, from the millennium...to peace....to courage.

"Dolly speak of God, healing, pain, scars, forgiveness, prejudice, feelings, death, and love.  In New Beginnings, Dolly shares with us the intimate details of her childhood, early adult life, marriage...and the trials and tribulations of living that life.

"More importantly, Dolly teaches us the strength and serenity  that can come from the growth derived from these experiences.  New Beginnings illuminates the mistakes that Dolly (and so many of us) has made.  But in Dolly's case, it reflects the new beginning she enjoyed after each and every happening."

Richard Fuller, Senior Editor, Metaphysical Reviews

This book is more than a collection of poetry. It's a book to help healing and learning how to forgive. Dolly's poetry gives meaning and hope to controversial issues. She embraces life's problems with words of encouragement, giving readers hope and inspiration for happy ending in dealing with their own challenges. In this book you will find feelings you never thought you could reveal, expressed through poetry. The last two parts of her book tell a little about her life. Through this book and the sequel she is now working on, she's trying to stop hate, prejudice and anger in society today, and to help people heal a lot faster than she did from physical and mental abuse. Many people, even young children have told her that they can relate to her book and has helped them in some way. This book will also be marketed as a self-help book for healing. It would make a great gift and should be in everyone's home, where they can pick it up and refer to it when needing help to get past hurting to thinking positive toward forgiving.
