Facebook Reviews for Karma Peace

 

Joe Studebaker - Dayton, Ohio
I just finished Karma Peace. Thank you. Thank you for the pains I know you 
have experienced to bring forth such beauty. Thank you for sharing. As any 
good book, KP has touched many cords, nerves, secret places, identity soft 
spots and hard pressed callouses of Reason. A wonderful book for reflection. 
I will read it again, soon, to see what I missed with the first reading. You see 
more when you're not looking for what is on the next page. ;) The book was 
a truly wonderful experience for me. Many, many thanks and blessings. 
Namaste.

Connie M. Van Cleve has a way of instantly getting inside a character's head so 
they jump off the page and straight into your heart. Karma's confounding 
confusion and emotional pain really resonated with me as did her frantic 
desperation to change her situation. I was totally swept up in her journey and 
quest to understand all the bizarre pieces of her life & past and how they 
threaded into the fabric of her identity. And the rich descriptions of India, 
clearly derived first hand, were as authentic as the diverse and fascinating 
characters. Their stories are woven together so carefully that all their 
seemingly jagged little pieces eventually fall together into this one brilliant 
vision of self-awareness. It's truly an inspired work.

Your book was amazing! The ending took me completely by surprise. It was 
very entertaining, a real page-turner; very well-developed and researched, 
and I would definitely recommend it to friends and family. Keep up the good 
work, madam. Namaste!

Karma Peace...WOW! WHAT A FANTASTIC JOURNEY! Connie has a 
gifted literary talent to make characters, sounds, smells, and colors come to 
life in the readers mind in the wonderful tale of a woman searching for her 
inner peace. Her literary transition from character to character and situation to 
situation is spot on and makes for an easy to follow and exciting read! I can’t 
wait for the sequel!!! Hmm? Maybe a storyline about the twins, Chandra and 
Tara’s Journey perhaps! ;)

Karma Peace was a magnificent read! I loved every moment of it. I can't wait 
for Connie's next book, whenever that may be. A gifted writer, to be sure 
sure.

I went to bed early and stayed up late, just to read another page. I love the 
intricacy of the story. Connie makes color jump from a black and white page. 
Well done.

to everyone about it today so I hope they shared...I look forward to talking 
to you about it, too...The ending was unexpected and beautiful...I cried!!!!

Really enjoyed your book. Your words paint a vivid picture of India...and the 
human condition...

I am in Costa Rica reading your book. After 4 hours of spanish and before 2 
hours of yoga it is a perfect escape. Thanks!

I finished your book last night. Great job!!! And I agree with your quote (on 
fear), am now reading a book called 'When Fear Falls Away'. I hope it will 
for me...

Began my new year by reading the first several chapters of Karma Peace. 
Very good stuff! The connection between the camel and Sweetheart the 
horse brought tears to my eyes.

KARMA PEACE....what a wonderful book. Connie I do not have the 
literary skills as yourself, but I can say, that with your writing I am able to be 
right there with you in the book and use all my senses...through feeling, 
seeing, hearing, smelling and tasting. It's a full blown mind eruption just in the 
first few pages...Totally awesome!
Jennie Palmer (second entry)
I am a slow methodical reader Connie...and your book Karma Peace actually 
speeds up my process as I turn each page...It is so well written and you are 
an exceptional author...thanks for being a part of so many peoples lives...this 
should be on the Best Seller List!!!

Wow, Connie! Just read the first 30% of the KP ebook download (yep, link 
works brilliantly) and am full of praise for the story so far...can't wait to finish 
it. Well done! It's gutsy and evocative and mysterious and a hundred other 
epithets I could use. Great stuff!

Colorado Springs, CO - Rosie Milatz-Good :
Just finished the book this morning. Please tell me you have plans to write 
more books!
Connie Van Cleve:
Wow, Rosie! You finished already? Awesome. And yes, I am in the 
incubation stage of the sequel to KARMA PEACE...thanks for asking. That 
must mean that you enjoyed it! ;
Rosie Milatz-Good:
It doesn't take me long to read a book that keeps my attention. It was 
wonderful. Looking forward to the next one.

I'm only about a quarter of the way through, and I am so happy we 
connected on Face book, so that I may become aware of your baby. I am 
loving your colorful, original metaphors. The honesty in which you describe 
India, and the main character including her own flaws, shows the good, bad, 
and ugly, of both, still...leaving the reader wanting more and rooting for 
Karma. Thanks for sharing your experiences + imagination.

I finished Karma Peace and loved it. I chuckled at the humor, and cringed at 
the gritty parts. I felt It was an honest portrayal of the multi layered 
characteristics, not only human beings posses, but the country she turns to for 
her salvation as well. Thanks so much for putting forth the effort in writing and 
publishing Karma Peace.

Diane Diamond (second entry)
A really great book! Actually, it's more than a book, it's a journey...

Connie: there is only one word for your book: AWESOME!! Just finished 
reading it last night...what a great book!!!

Beth Chase Hluska - Portland, Oregon
Just finished this book last night...LOVED it!

Maya Judicia de Souza - Fremantle, Australia
I finished Karma Peace! My girl, it was a very good and interesting read, and 
I'm sure it was for you such a release to put all your feelings and experiences 
together to produce such a piece. I saw in my mind the places you 
mentioned, and thought, we were in the same places...once, at separate 
times. And maybe before that...together. I love that we are able to see 
beyond what is generally accepted by the masses! I am going to lend the 
book to my mum, I know she's going to love it too!

Just finished reading "Karma Peace". I enjoyed it very much, the scenery, 
attention to detail (felt like I was right there in India with Karma) the 
characters and, of course, anything with past life recall as that is my area of 
study. Thank you, Connie. Namaste.

More to come soon...
