    One thought on “The Gardens of Ailana”

    1. Terrorizing childhoods can deform us for life. In this book, troubled adults learn to come clean about their pasts and about the damage they are doing by still carrying them around. It is a book about healing that anyone can learn from.

    2. I bought this book after hearing the author read an extract from it at a spoken word night called Verbalise in Kendal, UK. I enjoyed the extract that he read very much and he also performed some of his other writings. I was particularly interested in this book after he described the lady and garden that inspired the book. This is one of those books that you partly want to keep reading because you enjoy the immersive experience at the world created by the book and you also partly want to pause in [...]

    3. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review through FirstReads Giveaways.The Gardens of Ailana was interesting. Lots of great scenery, gave me some rather questionable dreams, but for the most part kept my interest until almost the end.The introduction of the book suggests the book would be about Ailana and her personal role in the healing of four people with well rounded histories. Let's discuss what really happens. (without spoilers)Ailana herself feels like a plot dev [...]

    4. Where emotional healing can transpire.This is a different type of novel. It has several people who had terrible, childhoods, full of pain and abuse and they do not function well as adults. The story doesn’t really tell where the Gardens of Ailana are, but Ailana is a healer, although she does it more by using healing psychic energy rather than on hands healing. The story has little action. It consists of these suffering individuals immersed in the pain of their childhoods and eventually with s [...]

    5. This story is about lost, damaged souls trying to find their way in this world by going to The Gardens of Ailana retreat. Quote from Paulette, "I don't know how to love, and I don't know how to trust, and I don't really know anything about anything." These damaged individuals are suffering spiritually from past childhood or adulthood traumas and are seeking a way to heal. Ailana and her gardens are full of the knowledge, patience and kindness to help them heal. A beautifully written story that c [...]

    6. Very spiritual without being religious. It helps to get one's own life in order to see things through a fictional character.
