Description: What happens when a young girl is playing hide-and-seek with her cousin and her special hiding place suddenly turns into an exploding inferno? Nine-year-old Lesia Cartelli lived through the total demolition of her grandparent's home that resulted in burns covering 50 percent of her body and face. You will discover her scars are her gift as you learn quickly that Lesia Cartelli attracts people to her heart. 'Heart of Fire' takes you on a roller coaster ride.
Verdict: Make no bones about it, 'Heart of Fire: An Intimate Journey of Pain, Love and Healing' is a book that a) you will find hard to read at times, and b) will stay with you, resonate with you a long, long time thereafter. More than that, if you take it all in, understand it, allow it to become a parable, 'Heart of Fire' is almost the perfect example of how you yourself can also use a most horrible tragedy to - eventually - help others.
In 'Heart of Fire,' Lesia Cartelli's stunningly open, beautifully honest, truly revealing book brings to us her life's journey and demonstrates, on more than one level, how to discover blessings and gifts within any type of challenge.
Not necessarily written for all those who are struggling with pain, emotional or physical, but moreover a book to share the message that anyone who has been through hard times and seeks inspiration and hope can just read the book and find hope within its pages also. Sure, Lesia shares her story with bravery and humility, giving credit to those that have helped her and also those that tried to block her path. She does not invoke pity, for herself or these negative people she once surrounded herself with, but moreover exudes warmth, love and power for those that helped, those who surround her now, and for those that need help with their own bad situations.
Reading 'Heart of Fire,' learning about what she has had to battle through to become the woman she is will definitely bring all kinds of emotions to the surface for you. I urge everyone to read this book and listen to what Lesia has to say. It is a very inspirational book about the human spirit and the human heart. I can only imagine how many hearts Lesia has touched by bravely telling and sharing her story! Please, please Buy this book today and read it TODAY!
