Amazon Pathways of the Heart Reviews

 I have the utmost respect for both the author, Diane Yates, and her mother, Clella. Throughout the reading of Pathways of the Heart, I kept putting myself in her shoes: the living without electricity, running water, even a bathroom; not being loved or appreciated; being abandoned and neglected; having to raise six children on her own. What determination, faith and strength she had to have to survive for both herself and her children. Diane has done a remarkable job of putting into words her mother’s life; one we should learn from. Much praise! Must read!

A story of courage, traveled with faith…

By Gwendolyn Plano

Life takes us down paths that we rarely expect; but, it is these wanderings that present us with decisions that shape our life. Clella’s journey brought her to a divide at which she depended upon her faith to resolve. The book is a testament to this overriding trust in God.

As I read the book, I was impressed by the quiet dignity that traveled from page to page. The respectful tone of the author reveals a heart that knows human sorrow and joy, since both are expressed eloquently. This is a book of courage and of proud love. I recommend it to all, but most especially Christian women who are open to traveling with a “sister” who knew life in its fullness.

Courage in the Face of Adversity

By Rochelle Fields

Pathways of the Heart is a loving tribute to the author’s mother, Clella. Ms. Yates tells the story with affection and honesty of a woman who faced the struggles of the depression, an unfaithful husband and the challenge of raising six children virtually by herself. I wept with Clella as she battled loneliness in the midst of primitive conditions. In the end I admired the courage this tender human being to own up to her choices and to call upon God’s help to rise above them.

My mother is the author. This book is about my grandmother. She was the strongest and most caring person I have ever known. This book is a great tribute to her and the journey God walked her thru. Masterfully written!
