Josephine Book reviews

Josephine: A Pathway to Freedom is a modern tale that speaks about spiritual emancipation, which occurs when Josephine dares to listen to her growth need and, by abandoning the safety of a golden cage, finally finds herself. The tale, which shows an ironic side as well, is a dreamlike journey which makes you think about chances and choices which make your pathway through life and also invites you to follow your internal self and never give up looking for freedom, happiness and making every day count. “Unhappiness, however, is not a state of mind to denigrate. On the contrary, it is a message that tells, or screams, to us that we must change, and if we can grasp this message, we have the opportunity to grow and expand”. -Chiara A.

I finished your book and it is marvelous 🙂 congratulations on a great accomplishment. It was inspiring to read especially since I am going through my own transition and would love to get more in touch with my true nature. -April S.

Josephine is an intense novella that touches your heart in her kind, soft, gentle, matriarchal way! The character Josephine came to my mind many times after I finished reading it. It took me for a while to understand why and I had to go deeper in me to discover why it effected me so much. We need to discover our inner power, power to make our own path, break or complete our circles. Josephine gives you the chance to remember this! Virginia Elena Patrone’s the way of writing is so sincere, you feel that she is just sitting next to you and whispering the story into your ear with a warm and deep voice. I am looking forward to reading more of her writings! -Çiğdem F.
