“In the end, the character realizes we are all here to learn lessons, and the art of life is how we deal with our struggles. She learns how to tap into the love and light within and lives her life from that space, hence the title.”

Michelle Zarrin’s new novel “From My Heart to Yours: Based on a True Story” (published by Balboa Press) draws on real experiences to craft an engaging story of living with an addict, divorce, death, pure life lessons learned from preschool children, and ending with the depth and beauty of meditation.
“My book is about love, loss, life and death,” says Zarrin. “In the end, the character realizes we are all here to learn lessons, and the art of life is how we deal with our struggles. She learns how to tap into the love and light within and lives her life from that space, hence the title.”
An excerpt from “From My Heart to Yours”:
“Her father had left this world, lying on a bed which was not his own, in a room that he had not occupied for longer than half of a day, in a building that he did not pay the mortgage or rent to inhabit. He left solely with the spirit that he had shaped during the time that he lived as a citizen of this world. In the end, Sofia discerned, it is not all of our material possessions, our worries, our memories, our struggles, our triumphs, our joys or our miseries that we take with us, or that even matter. What matters is how we cultivated our spirit through all of the wonderful or awful experiences we had to endure during this life.”
Readers will discover allusions to their own lives as they experience Sofia, the protagonist, going through the events of her life. The plethora of lessons that Sofia learns will resonate with them. “The book is about the struggles of life,” Zarrin points out, “not portrayed in a dark way, but learning to deal and cope with the lessons, with dignity and grace.”
