"Ramblings and Reflections of a Bahamian-American Poet" by T.L. Bethel is a beautifully written collection of emotional writings inspired by the journey of a humble man, who has fought to break free of the limitations put on him by the "non-believers" in the world around him. I can only say personally that I connected with each piece on many levels, constantly surprised by the level of emotion evoked regardless of how many times I read each one. Each word in this masterpiece truly reveals his essence in its purist form, and the vulnerability that is exposed throughout the writings. The words flow like each one was predetermined and meant to be exactly as they are. This book is a gift to me, the literary world, and to everyone who is honored to pick it up and allow themselves to be open to embracing the joy and beauty of the true passion T.L. Bethel puts on each page. The reason this book will be a success is because he is just a guy with a genuine heart and the courage to open himself up to path the universe has chosen for him. His writings have inspired me, as I know they will inspire each of you who are about to embark on a literary expedition of a lifetime.
