Today's review is on The Fool's Journey by Kristina Jackson
The Fool's Journey is the first book that I have read by Jackson,
and though it does have some paranormal aspect to it, I found that I
lost interest after getting half way through. The cause? There seemed
to have been just to many sub plots. A woman using her body for
advancement in her company, a budding romance, the death of a loved one,
the surprise pregnancy of another, two ghost stories, and a wedding
that we never actually see.
After spending most of her career; basically selling her body to her
bosses, Moira sees another woman being abused on the street. The woman
is pregnant and later dies from her injuries. Shocked that one of the
men that she sleeps with could treat this other woman so poorly, Moira
seeks out advice from a psychic at a fair and receives a tarot reading.
Having full confidence in her the tarot, Moira sells her home and
moves to start a new life. He new home however already has two
occupants. A ghost named Jimmy, and the spirit of a young girl who
resides in an old trunk.
She befriends her elderly neighbor and falls in love with her
nephew. Once she becomes his fiance she is welcomed with open arms to
the rest of his family.
Throughout everything, Moira checks her faithful tarot cards each
day and meditates on their meaning. In doing this, she bases all of her
I originally thought that I would love this book, but I found that I
just could not. There were mistakes throughout the copy that I was
provided, and I had to force myself to continue through to the end. I
guess in the end it just wasn't my cup of tea. Perhaps if there was
more focus on the romantic aspect of Moira and fiance's life, I would
have enjoyed it more.
Though I would probably have given the book a three star rating,
with the number of mistakes that were within it, I just cannot, in good
faith do even that.
