Breath of Joy! Winter Whispers by author Kathy Joy is a book celebrating winter, hope, and God through prose, thoughts, and pictures. It is a simple yet deep book. Even those that do not like winter will glean something from this small book.
Do not expect a story beginning on page one and continuing until the end of the book. Each page and picture are combined to make their own beautiful, poignant statement. The author writes that this is “to her growing tribe of widows” so I felt a sense of loss and yet comfort in this book.
It would make a nice winter coffee table book. The pictures are beautiful and the writing permeates my heart. For someone grieving this would be a comforting easy to read book. I would give it as a gift.
I recommend this book. It receives a 4 out of 5 stars from me. A copy was provided by Celebrate Lit but this is my honest opinion.
About the Book
Book: Breath of Joy! Winter Whispers

Genre: Non-fiction, Gift Book, Picture Book
Release Date: October 1, 2019
The final book in the series, Breath of Joy, Winter Whispers speaks of the deep quiet earth movements that echo human proving grounds and transitions during rest. Photo Art and Prose. Three everyday celebrations on every page spread are not commercially Christmas but rather interrelational and spiritually poised. This is simply, because in Winter when the earth’s axis is the farthest away from the sun, people warm themselves and grow in the wonder of darkness, where God still sees us, breathing life.
