It is on You to Own you
"It Is On You To Own You"- (these seven words of wisdom) is a treatise of self-determination.
Delpha has "put to book" a refreshing and therapeutic representation of the experiences so common to many Jamaicans.
Her candidness shows a delicate balance between exposure of very sensitive family and personal matters on the one hand and the unvarnished truth on the other hand!
She gives insight into how one can reconcile with memories of the turbulent past. She aptly provides a basis for doing so on page 181- "Keeping the peace is not the answer. The answer is to live in truth".
Her originality of style is like the ebb and flow of the Caribbean Sea- taking me from pain and sympathetic tears to unbridled laughter, from local issues to national and international issues, from ignorance to practical knowledge, from manual labour to medical procedures and so much more.
Inspirational, authentic and unapologetically transparent yet 'down to earth' and very encouraging. Like the eagle, may her strength be renewed always. " My life is in the hands God gave me. I am living with God's guidance each day. I want to listen to his voice more as he directs my path" page 198 Nuff success.
Stay the course.
"This is a page turner. If you are the kind to get inspiration from the success and journey from squalor to grace, then this book is for you. Delpha, I am moved by the life you have manifested for yourself.."
"A must read for anyone going through it right now! An inspirational tale, thanks for sharing Delpha!!"
"... This book is proof that your past doesn’t define you and that the possibilities are endless when you are committed to working hard and shaping your own future. Bravo."
"Great read of tenacity and faith. It really highlights the strength of believe in oneself and the power of God. It’s a must read for motivation."
"I love the energy with which the book was written. As a physician I know the pace of care in the ED and I felt I was there with her as she described the day to day activity there . I was also impressed with her wisdom , passion , and character and her commitment to be the best nurse..."
"I do recommend that everyone should read this book is was so interesting and an eye opener for men having multiple children with different women while also understanding the jamaican culture."
"Inspiring read. I’m a few chapters in and I can’t wait to read the rest!"
"This new breakout author brings heart & soul to what it is like to be an emergency room nurse in a different country other than where she grew up in poverty. The insights into her humanity are heartwarming, funny, sad, loving, and loyal--fueled with ambition to learn and find her way to an abundant life. I could not put it down. I highly recommend this book."
