Her before-drugs mother always tried to see goodness everywhere and Sadie tries to emulate her, soaking up any glints of kindness to insulate her in hard times. Can poetry substitute for tears? Sadie expresses her emotions in poems, which she hides away in her suitcase, and if found will cost her a beating. Can simple objects like a red plastic glass minister to an abused child? Yes, if you are Sadie; the glass is her talisman. This is not just a story of just hardship. Its about coming through hardship with your soul intact, about fi nally triumphing and thriving. At its core its about fi nding, although not understanding, forgiveness.

✏The Red Glass Ball Book Summary : Metaphysically it is said that within each of us are memories of lives from distant years. These memories are past stories that may teach and inspire us in our present day. Eight stories in The Red Glass Ball: Touching Lives through History follow the unexpected path of a red glass ball over the ages as it aids, guides, and inspires individuals through time as they face significant hurdles in their lives. While each story is as unique as the character it follows, combined they create a powerful energy that stimulates life-guiding questions about our own stories. Is the red glass ball the answer – or merely a reflection of the truth that the characters, like each one of us, has hidden within?
