Review: ‘Orange Petals’ in a Storm by Dr Niamh Clune – magical realism/ metaphysical fiction

orange petal cover I give you a quote that may influence you to read the full review of the book “Orange Petals in a Storm” and to then go out and find this book and make it your own as I have and other books by Dr. Niamh Clune. And enjoy and be caught in the imagination of Skyla McFee and in the writing of such an inspirational and enlightening writer and artist as Niamh Clune. I have had the pleasure of knowing about her writing for awhile now and find that they are at the front of my reading list. I read and reread Niamh Clune’s writing and her poetry and the writing on her blog http://onthelumtree.wordpress.com/ … it is one of my regular blog spots besides my own. j.k. Jennifer kiley ps. I forgot to include the quote when I reblogged the review post. so here it is: “Modern metaphysical/visionary literature often crosses genres and enters into the little celebrated field of magic realism. In this genre, the supernatural is part of tangible reality; spirit and nature are interwoven, inseparable, and unquestioned, and the extraordinary is made ordinary. Metaphysical literature tells tales of the inner life. Usually these tales are told simply, in prose that reaches to express the beauty inherent in us and in the world about us. Its task is to give voice to soul and its yearning to transcend the suffering of everyday reality.”
