GHBT- 'Tea and Madness' by C. Streetlights Tour- Mel's Review & Giveaway @Cstreetlights

Tea and Madness
By- C. Streetlights
Genre- Women’s Fiction/Poetry/Memoir
Publication Date- June 29th, 2015
Published By- Booktrope Publishing

“And when it falls into silence again the void it echoes fills me with wonder. Wonder only because I no longer remember if this small entity isn’t real or if it whispers the truth.”

C. Streetlight’s memoir, Tea & Madness, is a collection of prose and poetry separated into the seasons of her life. Each season is inspired by her experiences: grieving a lost baby, understanding depression, anger, betrayal, surviving rape and the acceptance that she cannot forgive. Balanced somehow within the darkness is the wonder in motherhood and empathetic relationships. As her seasons change, she continues trying to find the balance of existing between normalcy and madness.


Mel's Review -

Tea and Madness is a memoir; a poignant collection of short stories and poetry by the amazing C. Streetlights. It's a journey through life, abuse, pain, healing and learning. It's beautiful and I thought the tidbits about different teas and tea services and the like at the end was a lot of fun, a wonderful addition to the book. I thoroughly enjoyed this volume and will definitely be looking for more from this author.

My Rating-

About the Author-
She has met many fools, but admires Don Quixote most because he taught her that it didn’t matter that the dragon turned out to be a windmill. What mattered was that he chose to fight the dragon in the first place.

Streetlights now lives in the mountains with a husband, two miracle children, and a dog who eats Kleenex. She retired from teaching so she can raise her children to pick up their underwear from the bathroom floor, to write, and to slay windmills and dragons. She is happy to report that she can finally see the stars.
