Real by Shelley Malcolm Book Blog Tour and Review!

 I had the privilege of reviewing Shelley Malcom's new and A-M-A-Z-I-N-G book recently. The book is a compilation of  60 touching and inspiring stories of people and their lives. The stories are moving and deep, while the photos of the subjects hands are just as moving and detailed, there remains an anonymity to them as you never see the subjects faces. I am in LOVE with this book and have shared it with everyone who comes to my house! It combines so much: beauty, art, substance, simplicity, that it draws you in with the first profile. Which happens to be my favorite one in the book.

 Just look at those beautiful hands! And those rings! I am utterly and completely smitten with her. Her profile is touching and just as lovely as the photo. This book is such a gem, I'm encouraging you to pick up a copy for a friend or relative! They will not be disappointed - not one bit. It's also a great coffee table book and conversation starter too!
