Since You Lost Your Brother

Since You Lost Your Brother

A Story of Healing

Daniel Yetman

Dec 2017

105 pages, ebook, paperback



The author provided me a copy of this book. This is my honest review for which I receive no compensation of any kind.

The cover is the weakest part of the book. It didn’t really attract my attention or hold my interest before or after reading the book. It has a dreamy feeling to it, but it really doesn’t fit the book, I feel. I want something stronger for it, something that reveals more of the emotion inside.

The artwork for each piece fits in the mind of the author, so I had to wonder at times if the piece was getting across to me properly. If the art didn’t seem to be right for the written piece, then maybe I wasn’t understanding the writing. Or maybe I just wasn’t seeing something in the art that the writer was focused on. But I found that most of the artwork really worked well with the written portions of the book.

The written format, a letter format, was interesting. A continuous communication between the one sent away and the one doing the sending. Of course, it was all one-sided, which made it lonely and added to the sense of abandonment. Adding the simple photos to these brief communications created a real sense of peeking into his world as he worked his way through his emotions and tried to find his balance. It was an extremely poetic form. In fact, at times, it felt like I was reading poetry. The author’s words had a very smooth flow to them that lent to that sense and the pairing with some of the photos added to that impression.

This is a beautiful story told in a unique format by a gifted writer. I highly recommend it.
