This is my fiction novel, Heart Seasons: A Journey of Miracles, a spiritual, inspirational fictional story based on real life events.
FROM THE BACK COVER
Have you ever felt like God was whispering to you? I have! One sunny day in the spring of 2012, I was sitting in my favorite comfy chair, writing in my journal. From out of the blue, I began experiencing a sensation I had never felt before. I felt a calming warmth in my heart and all of a sudden, I started writing down ideas on the blank pages in my notebook, one after the other, that just came to me.
I was receiving inspiration to tell a story from my personal journals. The first thing I wrote down was its title, “Heart Seasons.” It would be a fictional story based on different seasons from my own real life and each season of the novel would be defined by the colors of the rainbow. Come join me on my “Journey of Miracles.
“Lily Marie Eastbrook Rhodes.
In the colors of the rainbow, Blue is the fifth color, a pure color that cannot be created by combining any other colors. A color only God can create, it is the color of the sky and the sea and represents peace.
“Three things will last forever, faith, hope and love, and the greatest of these is love.”
1 Corinthians 13:13, NLT
HERE’S WHERE TO FIND IT:
Reviewed by Christian Sia for Readers’ Favorite – 5 Stars. Heart Seasons: A Journey of Miracles by Dianna Donnely is a spiritually rich, emotionally endearing, and psychologically affecting narrative that captures the beauty of one woman’s journey of faith into understanding the different seasons of her soul. In a moment of inspiration — revelation — the author felt a strong connection between the colors of the rainbow and her heart, and felt compelled to share the story of this “Journey of Miracles.” Starting with the meaning of each color of the rainbow, the author crafts an inspiring story of the Rainbow Revelation and explores themes of illness and suffering, love and surrender, family and friendship, and her spiritual connection with God. It’s interesting how this journey transforms her perception of life and how it makes her see God through every season of her life.
While this memoir reads like a spiritual autobiography, it is a symbolic journey that offers readers a very fresh perspective into thinking about their relationship with God. The rainbow is an image — colorful and soothing as it is — that symbolizes God’s enduring love for humanity, an image that recalls His compassion after the devastating flood, a symbol of His compassion. Dianna Donnely’s writing reflects the colors of the rainbow — joyous, colorful, and filled with light. You won’t be able to read this book and look at your life in the same way again. One of the greatest lessons I learned from Heart Seasons: A Journey of Miracles is that one thing alone is constant — God’s love. Every other emotion we feel is transitory, like the seasons. You’ll be inspired and entertained by this book, a rare gift of love and faith that you’ll want to pass on to others.
