‘ANGEL'S DESTINY: A Novel Story of Poems & Illustrations’ by April Martin Chartrand
Similar to novel style chapters, each advances you from one stage of life’s emotions to another. This collection of poems & illustrations mimics a novel in an unexpected way – similarly, it tells an emotional plot of a character which interweaves the four emotion elements Illusions, Anger, Awareness, Love - progressing forward towards a healing resolve. Each emotional character takes the reader through a progressive journey of a multi-cultural woman’s self-discovery . . . far away from adversity.

Angel's Destiny: A Novel Story of Poems & Illustrations
April Martin Chartrand
Emotion doesn't know just words alone. "Angel's Destiny: A Novel Story of Poems & Illustrations" is a collection of art and poetry from April Martin Chartrand as she brings readers into her own emotion and passion, transmitting these messages well through her chosen mediums. "Angel's Destiny" is an enticing collection, highly recommended. "Taking It Back": In our silence you had power/ to lie, cheat, beat, and steal.//A scene that later/became surreal.//Taking back the power of my birthright/reveals the sins of you.//Taking back my power,/I reveal to those who never knew.
