The Mourning Parade

REVIEW ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ö Dawn Reno Langley FREE READ Ã The Mourning Parade Dawn Reno Langley Ö 9 FREE READ Natalie DeAngelo lost everything the day her two young sons were killed in a school shooting Desperate to find relief from her unspeakable loss she volunteers as a. She clapped her hands and tried to speak but every time she opened her mouth all she could do was giggle Finally she managed I m sorry but if you could have seen your face Natalie thought but Mali s laughter was contagious and exactly the remedy for the tension she d been feelingHaven t we all experienced that contagious tension relief laughter from a friend maybe from our child I had to pause with that excerpt I stopped to remember a warm memory I sincerely wish I could just hug Dawn Reno Langley I m just so grateful to her for this book my first reading experience with Dawnand not the lastI read this book slowly with the deepest love and appreciation for everything about it I d read a little then pulled the covers up over my body snuggled in my bed not sleeping but letting my mind wanderall in association with this beautiful story that brought me to real tears between my reading sessions I mournfully felt the universal sorrows of the world the one s we ve all experienced tragedy sadness heartache grief anger regret unhappiness weepy melancholy etcThankfullyand profoundlyI also felt the universal bond of loveand forgiveness to the best of my abilityI was also very much in touch with the magnitude of sharing the planetpeople and animals together In The Mourning Paradeone of the reasons Natalie had come to the sanctuary was because of their commitment to give some of those broken blind and dispirited elephants a chance to live the rest of their lives with comfort and dignity they deserved She had privately admitted to herself on the plane coming here that working to help animals in a country where no one knew her might help her healDr Natalie D Angelo is one of the brightest in euine surgery She was trained in North Carolina A Fulbright scholar of North Carolina out of Raleigh One of the best programs in the state After meeting Andrew Gordon philanthropist at a veterinarian conference on behalf of the world s dwindling elephant population Natalie knew the time was right and made a spontaneous decision to travel to Thailand to work at Gordon s sanctuary ANOTHER PAUSE To my friends who live in North Carolina I thought about youand friends elephants who live in Thailand I thought about you There was a reason that Natalie committed to volunteer for year to work in Thailand with the elephants and leave her home in North Carolina A year before her two sons Steven and Danny 12 and 14 were both killed in the Lakeview Middle School rampage The only person that Natalie shared her deepest feelings with about life and death was with her psychiatrist Sally Littlefield Suffering from posttraumatic stress Dr Littlefield suggested that Natalie not make any big decisions until she got past that first anniversary Many parents lost children that day violence so senseless so horrific crazy insanefor everyone but Natalie well known respected veterinarian in the community she was the only parent to lose two children Her ex husband Parker had been out of her life and her boys lives for the past two years prior Once in Thailand as much as Andrew Gordon was Natalie s allied he highly admired her ualifications and what fool wouldn t well there was a stick in the mud grouchy resident vet who had been there for eight years named Dr Peter Hatcher who wasn t happy about Natalie s arrival Dr Hatcher had been trained at the Royal Veterinary College He remembered Natalie from many years ago Natalie had been one of the final readers of his dissertation she was just doing her job and he got debunked Other accusations were pointed at Natalie and Dr Hatcher carried a grudge So not only would Dr Peter Hatcher not be a colleague to enjoy a cup of tea with it seemed as if he was on a mission to make her stay miserable And this is where Natalie came to offer her skills volunteer for a year and heal a few of her own wounds We hope This story only gets better and better it s JUST STARTINGYou ll meet the community the volunteers adults children dogs and the elephants The sanctuary was founded in 1989 10000 acres a home for abused elephants right on the Kwai river with a constant source of water supply When we first meet Sophie an elephant that Natalie bonds with both suffering from PTSDit breaks our hearts knowing that for a long time she has lived with a burning flame in her legcaused by men Much of the story will center around Sophie and Natalie a beautiful storyand other elephants Ali who was cute and reminded Natalie of Albert Einstein gray tuffs of wiry hair creating puffs around the tops of his ears great moments of chuckles You meet Thaya Pahpao Apsara and other elephants We also learn about the political turmoil between Bangkok and Thailand One of the characters even shares of getting arrested in Bangkok an anti government protest For some reason I couldn t help but laugh I think because so much is going on and I loved these people that it was another tension relief luv moment Throughout Natalie will think about her two sons that she lost which is natural When Natalie would experience a bit of happiness and an outburst of love for another being I would feel such tenderness toward her I too had and invested interest in watching how this mother might allow herself a little joy back into her life again I have friends who have lost their children 1 very close friend I was reading and observing Natalie s thoughts admiring her dedication Through her work we do see her begin to open her heart but my uestion lingered Could she ever really forgive the monster who killed all those kids in the school and her two children And could she e even forgive Dr Hatcher when he was a challenge to forgive there is to that storyand is it possible forgiveness true forgiveness is one of the hardest things for people to give freely As for the the elephants Elephants are endangered something that we should take seriously The fact that it takes the females 22 months to have a single baby is difficult when you re trying to increase the elephant populations PAGE TURNING STORYTELLING but I paused to think often because this book really lived deeply in my heart The second I saw this book I knew I wanted to read it Now I wish for a physical copy tooMy first favorite elephant was named Effie She lived at the Oakland Zoo There are not many photos of me growing up but I do remember the photo of my dad me and Effie I was 3 years old I visited her many times again with my cousin s after my dad died a day picnic at the zoo and my desire to see Effie Who doesn t love a big fat elephant

REVIEW ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ö Dawn Reno Langley FREE READ Ã The Mourning Parade Dawn Reno Langley Ö 9 FREE READ Nd a way to heal an angry injured elephant named Sophie Through love acceptance and gentle care Natalie and Sophie heal together finding new ways to enjoy life agai. I was totally immersed in The Mourning Parade caught up in Dawn Reno Langley s tale of a woman dealing with a haunted past The story focuses on Natalie and her struggle with an insane event that dominates her thoughts While the author paints the scenes emotions rumble through Natalie s mind emerging as a mixture of personal strength threatened by a volcanic anger that might erupt at any moment while guilt hovers nearby The author has a genuine talent with words and is able to use them to paint incredible pictures on page after page Natalie s pain after losing two sons was realistic and her daily efforts to sort out her feelings is brought to life without inducing readers to feel sorry for her Instead we are on the sidelines encouraging her hoping she will find the magic that will enable her to put her loss in perspective and get on with her life The interplay between Natalie and her boss coworkers and others in the animal sanctuary flows naturally and I loved the story all the way to the climax Or until just before the climax I was not happy with the ending for several reasons and a book that was a solid five star effort uickly slid to a lower rating While I try to not give away any of the plot the descriptions below may reveal than what a potential reader would want to know Hence the spoiler warningWARNING Potential Spoilers I recommend for people to read this book as Ms Langley has an incredible talent at putting the right words together and at creating wonderful dialogue Unfortunately I felt the ending contained too many plot devices too many attempts to create an Oh my God moment While others may like the direction the plot took at the end I found it extremely disappointing Based upon everything I had read up until then I had expected Proper research is also important and for most of the book I was impressed with the author s efforts to be true to reality One part however was so far from the truth it was sad The description of the school shooting informed us the shooters had revolvers and shotguns but had never held a gun before yet they were able to easily hit head and heart shots due to experience with video games The majority of people even when threatened are not able to shoot to kill yet we are to believe that four kids who only want to scare people can suddenly turn into mass murderers Five stars with a disappointing ending and wrap up that dropped that rating to three and a half starsrounded to four stars because most of the book was very very goodMy thanks to the author and publisher for a complimentary copy of this book
