A Corona of Clouds by Sonya Lewis is a powerful book that every woman should read, a book that explores inner worlds that most women carry within themselves, the world of their brokenness and silent tears, the world of their solitude. In this book, the author shares stories about different women and her personal experiences, poems, and insightful notes will help readers muster the courage to face their brokenness. She observes that: “As women, if only we could allow ourselves the luxury of being weak … surely someone would enter our lives, and offer the cement to mend those cracks.” Most often, women would like to give the impression that they have it all while making a lot of effort to hide the pain they feel inside. But the author offers a wonderful alternative that will help women accept their pain and hurts and set out on the journey to “get it all,” because this journey allows them to mature into their better selves.

This is a beautiful book, well-crafted, and in it the author shares her hard-won lessons, offering deep insights about life and womanhood, and communicating hope in a voice that is bold and reassuring. I loved many passages in this book and some of the poems are very compelling, emotional, and heartwarming. Here are some of my favorite lines: “Do not be afraid of tears, / Embrace them /Therein lies the beginning of your healing.” A Corona of Clouds is a beautiful and compassionate offering, a book from someone who seems to have listened to the cry that rises from the heart of every woman, every day, and who offers the path toward healing and compassion. It is refreshing and very edifying; a book to read and pass on. Sonya Lewis’ writing is both delightful and inspiring.
