A Soul Passenger: When Love Collides by Brenda-Lee Ranta is a story based on Brenda-Lee’s own experiences. A Soul Passenger: When Love Collides starts off with the main character’s struggles with her family and we get a glimpse into her home life as well as her marriage. We also learn about her parenting struggles as she copes with moving on from her marriage. In the midst of all this, she meets Drew and they start communicating. Once they eventually meet in person, sparks fly and there is a strong and instant personal connection. However, it is not all smooth sailing as they deal with ups and downs in their relationship, along with issues around addiction and dysfunctional family dynamics. This is ultimately a story of love and healing.
A Soul Passenger: When Love Collides by Brenda-Lee Ranta is an interesting read. Although it is a work of fiction, as per Brenda herself, it draws from her own personal experiences and the story is based loosely around her own life. I liked that this is not simply a story of two people meeting or even a love story, but goes deeper than that by delving into the main character’s background and her previous relationship as well as family issues. This makes the book more real and relatable. There are also references to alternative healing methods explored in the book, which may be of interest to a reader. Overall, the flowing and casual writing style, along with the real issues like addictions that the story highlights, makes this a worthwhile read.

About the Author
Brenda-Lee Ranta composed her first poem at the age of seven. Throughout her life, she used prose as a means of logging her experiences in a life which has been under ‘constant construction.’
Amazing to her, is that at the age of 58, CTU Publishing Group published her first book, “Myriad of Perceptions,” to be followed by “Allegories – a thirst for connection.” It was for her, a life changing experience, taking her from journal writing to giving her words a life beyond herself. Her two books also were awarded five-star reviews from Readers Favorites.
Brenda-Lee Ranta completed her first full novel, based on what she describes as her mystic life. “A Soul Passenger – when love collides” is her newest release with CTU Publishing Group. She shares a very deep and personal journey with her readers in this very emotionally charged book.
