If I was presented with this book, but it was still in manuscript form, I would say it could have potential. However, as a finished book, it falls far short of what it could have been, and I only finished it because I was provided a copy from the publisher for an honest review, therefore I *had* to read it. I feel if I say I'm going to read something, I need to, no matter how much I dislike a book.

This book is good in premise. There are 88 pages, and each chapter begins with a poem, then is followed by a short story of an event that happened in the author's life. When given the opportunity to review this book, it looked like one I would greatly enjoy Rosebud Blooming starts with the poem "Unfolding This Rosebud". While it is not of great literary quality, the sentiment is beautiful, and I settled in further, knowing I picked up a great read.

Chapter One, "Voice in the Valley" was the best edited selection in the book. The story could have used polishing, and I prefer much less dialogue in a passage. A tale often flows better without lots of "He said", "She whispered" interjected into the story. The recollection did give me goosebumps, I enjoyed this memory, and it was by far the best told story of the collection.

The next section starts with a poem "Skeletons in the Closet". This time I felt the poem was more forced. Rhymes such as "doors/metaphors" were used, and even "fear/years". I was always taught that if you end a line in a poem plural you need to have the next line with the same ending or it won't rhyme. In other words, fear rhymes with year, not years, and this was repeated frequently through the book. The poems grew increasingly forced and un-rhymed as the book progressed. Some of these couplets included "world/twirl", "clergy/worry", "others/shudders", and even "unique/freak". This book would have been infinitely stronger leaving out the poems. They would make a nice keepsake to hand down to family, but for a published book, they are not of enough literary quality to merit being included.

The number of interjections in the prose interrupted the flow. While the author may have thought "Ha!" or "Duh", leaving it out would have allowed the reader a more pleasant experience with this book. The questions in her thoughts made me have to stop and refocus as I forgot what was going in the story. An example of this is on page 63, "Huh? This was a quick-fix surgery?" and on page 72 where she thinks, "What planet does this guy live on?" (Given the situation I would have been thrilled someone came to my rescue and not given a second thought to someone calling from outside my window asking if my house was locked.) The English language is varied and has so many phrases that can be put together to create a tale, yet the author often resorted to cliches.

As a Christian reading a Christian book, I didn't feel like the abbreviation OMG! should have been used. While it would have read better spelled out instead of just "OMG!", my problem was this typically stands for "Oh My God!" and reading a Christian book, I didn't expect to see my Lord's name taken in vain.

The editor of this book certainly didn't do his/her job, either. There were two different times the author said "me and _____". Because it was in the predicate of a sentence, "me" was correct, but proper English dictates that the other person come before "me", an example is "my daughter and me". Technically you should also order people in importance. An example being "the president, my congressman, my mayor, and me". One of the times the author used "me and ____" she said "me and God". I believe God is much more important than the author, and I groaned out loud and checked how many more pages were left to this book I wanted to edit with a red pen.

I truly believe the story "Wounded, Rescued, and Saved" combined with "Betrayal" would make a wonderful full length book themselves. These were fascinating stories that would have had many details I am sure people would have found very interesting if they were just presented at length. I was hoping the bulk of the book would be about these two segments, but instead "Betrayal" was a mere five and a half pages long instead of memoir length. While of course, it could have been edited to make the writing more pleasant to read, the content was good enough to make up for the quality of writing. I really wish the author would consider writing this as a full length book, but I would recommend finding a different editor next time she publishes! While some might disagree with the fact that homosexuality needs a "complete healing" as she states at the end of this vignette, there is enough to draw from to write a whole book merely on this section. If she doesn't do so, I hope her brother does. (And I sincerely hope she received his permission to write this story about him!)

I was excited to read this book, and I fully expected to like it. I think it has potential, but I feel it's still in rough draft form. Losing the poems, polishing the stories and adding some more I believe would make this into a much better read. As it is, it was difficult for me to concentrate on the content in part because of writing style and with grammar problems a good editor should have fixed. For this reason I give it one star.

I read Rosebud Blooming, in exchange for honest review from BookSneeze.The book was written by Nancy Maggio and published by WestBow Press.

I used Reader for PC to read the book and I admit I did not like the panel format, but I loved the book. The book discusses moving forward, even when life has challenges. We need to find ways to move past the pain and depend more on God, during the good times and bad times.

I am not a perfect Christian. I have made plenty of mistakes. Some of my issues, I had to truly rely on God because I could not trust people. As we rely on God, we mature and blossom into more beautiful human beings.

The book presents stories and poems. The first poem was simply beautiful. It was entitled Unfolding this rosebud. The poem was saying the author was a rosebud, who could not grow because she was in so much pain. Her heart was hurting. She needed God to help unfold the rosebud and to help her grow, otherwise she would wither away and die. Seeking God and maintaining a relationship will also require maturity, wisdom, and and trust.

The other stories and poems have a reoccurring theme of listening and depending on God. One of the first stories discusses hearing a voice in the woods, and thinking it was grandma. Nancy and her brother heard the voice and ran towards it because her brother was hurt. The voice was God because their grandma did not know the kids were missing. Another good story involved an unplanned pregnancy and the boyfriend wanted an abortion; child molestation; single parenting; child illness; depression, and addiction

The book, discusses finding freedom in letting the past go. We have to free those old skeletons in the closet and give God the burdens, worry, and baggage. Let God handle our problems. I really enjoyed reading this book. I did identify with some of the author's stories and poems, especially on single parenting,, depression, and addiction.

As she exposes her hurts, personal habits, and broken relationships, you will see first hand the healings. Through God's abiding love, this rosebud is blooming. - Booksneeze review


Rosebud Blooming is a great Spiritual Growth book. Nancy Maggio wrote many stories about her struggles she faced through her teen years until just a few years ago. The stories always end with a great description about another 'peddle' being taken off and pasted back onto the 'Rose'. She is also a very talented poem writer. She adds poems about her life in this very exciting book and never leaves you without a thought of your relationship with God. Since the beginning of this book, I have seen a dramatic change in my relationship with God. She helps you understand the true meaning of the phrase "He is with you'.

Nancy explains her troubles from her teenage sex addiction to her youngest daughters fearful incident to the homosexuality of a dear member of her family. Every struggle, tear and fight she fought is worth the read and is definitely a book to consider if you have doubts about your faith, trust and relationship with God.

In conclusion, I have to tell you of the importance this book has taught me and I hope teaches you. As I ended the book reading a few verses from the Bible that she placed in there, I felt a clothe of peace around me that I have never felt before. I could feel God's presence around me more than I have ever had. My relationship with God has definitely taken a turn for the better all thanks to this sweet author who shared her life with us. I can guarantee to you that once you finish the last verse in this book (Psalm 73:23-24) you will feel what I have felt. I found myself smiling, crying and even feeling every emotion in my body shine through as I read this young woman's love for God.

Philippians 4:13 - "I can do all things through CHRIST who strengthens Me."

With love,

Rosebud Blooming- a review 1 de diciembre de 2011

In her book, Rosebud Blooming, Nancy extends a welcoming hand and invites us to come along as she recounts the incredible events that have shaped her into who she is today. Through her own poetry and vivid first hand accounts, she unveils the heart-wrenching trials and amazing triumphs she has faced, many of which will leave you shaking your head in the awesome power of God to change even the hardest and wayward of hearts.

Nancy's heart has been on a wild roller coaster ride and it was amazing to me to see how God has shaped and changed her from the inside out. I love to read people's testimonies and see where God has brought them from, and to see evidence of God's sovereign hand lain out plainly for the whole world to see. To me, Nancy's story is proof that God works miracles in lives that are willing to see them happen.

This is a short read and didn't take me very long to finish, and yet, honestly, I really struggled with this book. Nancy has really been through some amazing things in her life, but I found a lack of depth to the way she told her story; a lack of passion in the written words. I found myself wanting to skim over parts and hurry on ahead to the next chapter. It wasn't a book I wanted to keep coming back to, but I would recommend it to those wanting encouragement if they are facing trials they do not think God can overcome.

I'm giving Rosebud Blooming 3.5 stars, because, even though Nancy's writing may not have been attention grabbing, her testimony of God's amazing power to overcome seemingly impossible obstacles definitely was!

Would you like a nice book to read. I found this book to be one to keep your attention, but heart wrenching at other times. I found myself relating to some of the life trials that she had faced. I found the poems nice as I also will express things I'm going through with poetry. I have written poems to the ones in my life that have passed on as like a final farewell to them. There was one beautiful family member that was able to hear the poems that I wrote for her. She wanted me to read them to her as she found my poetry uplifting and enlightening. I did that for her and when she passed I placed them with her. While difficult to do that; I left knowing that we shared a special day when I read them to her. I will never forget that day.

I found when reading that some of my experiences in life didn't seem so bad when I read some of what she went through. I found when something more difficult came up that she was facing I found that I could relate with some of the more difficult things I've faced. One being told to go home plan the funeral of my baby that I had been trying for, for fourteen years due to complications. I did go home however I did not plan the funeral. I planned on having the baby; although the pregnancy was difficult the blessing of him arriving two months early was all I needed. He's my joy my life. I found that through this book Nancy Maggio leans on Christ for her strength to get through all that life brings to her. She seeks Him, asks Him for help ~ I found this to be comforting. I too leaned on Christ for my son. He brought us through what could have been bad, but thanking Him daily for letting me carry him one more day was more than enough. I find when we lean on Christ for all that we face in our lives our days, weeks, months, years are much better, more joy filled.

I hope you find this book enlightening and helpful as I did. I loved how she tied this to a rosebud. You picture the bud just being there then one after another the petals begin to open. Then she writes of a full bouquet of rosebuds dying on the vine. She mentions how God's unfailing love allowed the bouquet to come out of the darkness and the petals to unfold and blossom. I just think of us as a child in the Lord we're like that rosebud....just starting to open as we learn and read the word of the Lord. As we grow in the Lord we become more like that blooming rosebud; we're beautiful ~

I would recommend this book to you if you need healing or just to see and feel some of her pain and life experiences that may help you through your own.
