Book Review of “The Path of the Child” by Author, Sojourner McConnell. 5-Stars!

  The Path of the Child – By Author,   Sojourner McConnell – On Amazon


Seventeen-year-old Melanie Easton grew up in a lonely loveless home and accepted that she was facing an empty life. Unable to reach out to other children that she attended elementary and High School with, her quiet existence seemed to be her lot in life. One morning fate dropped a new friend into her life. As unexpected as it was that she made this friend, she noticed that changes started taking place in her life. After making a new friend, she finds that changes are occurring in her life. Will they be wonderful changes?




Born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama. Sojourner McConnell continued to live in Pleasant Grove while raising her three children until 2000. At that time Sojourner moved to Phoenix, Arizona. She thrived in Phoenix, finding creativity and independence.

In 2010 she moved back East to be closer to her children and grandchildren. She lives in Winchester, Kentucky with one of her daughters and three of her thirteen grandchildren. She has six grandchildren in Alabama and four that live in Michigan.

The Path of the Child is Sojourner’s first book. She is currently completing a second book at this time. This book is expected to be released in 2016. When not writing, she is busy entertaining her Australian Shepherd, Beau. Beau gets jealous when she spends too much time working on the computer.

Note: My dear friend Sojourner is not only a fantastic writer and author, but many know her as a passionate reader and book reviewer on her fabulous blog: The Page Turner – Vickie Goodwin.  Make sure you stop by and say hello!


“I Could Relate To This Coming of Age Story Personally”

Where do I begin? Even though this a piece of fiction, you learn right away that this story is one of many young girls journies and path in life. Starting from childhood to about 17, Melanie has faced abuse, abandonment, non-existent parental love as the list goes on. I could actually “feel” many of the same feelings Melanie felt. I to had a rough childhood. As I, and Melanie, just wanting to be heard or acknowledged from your parents would have been a sliver of hope for unconditional love.

I don’t like to spoil a good book, so what I will tell you is that the author did an exceptional job in writing this storyline as it shares many topics through her characters that brought meaning.
And when a writer can make you feel what she is writing with a tear shed, a smile with a laugh, a girl longing to find some truth, the power of friendship and feeling her character has ‘Triumphed’ by the end of the story?

Now that’s what makes a book a great read like this one!

And that is exactly what you get when reading “The Path of the Child.” It leaves you feeling inspired, learning the power of love, and shows we all have a “seed” within us to overcome anything in our lives through Melanie…. I will be waiting for book 2.
