This week’s question:

Have you ever been inspired by a book character to do something? Who was the character and what was it? – Suggested by  Eternity Through Pages

I can’t say “inspired to do something” but definitely been an influence on parts of my life.  There is a trilogy by Nora Roberts called Three Sisters Island  the novels are Dance Upon The Air (Nell),  Heaven and Earth  (Ripley) and Face The Fire  (Mia).  The three women in this series each touched me and taught me something.  Nell – how to stand up to my fears and live past them – Ripley – how to not be afraid to be angry or mad, and how to control the words that spill out when I am angry – and Mia – (Mia who has more shoes in her closet then she will ever wear) – how to stand tall no matter what the situation, with dignity and grace, and also how to let go of the past in order to embrace the future.  It might sound like a lot from some fictional characters – but I can definitely trace new and important reactions and decision back to this particular series.

Okay, now let’s get Blog Hopping!

      They are and I re-read the trilogy at least once a year. It’s like revisiting old friends.

      Very true. I wonder if authors ever think of how the story they write, from their life experiences and imagination, affect their readers. I’d like to ask a few authors that – maybe some day I’ll get the chance.

      Thanks for stopping by 🙂

      Her characters always come “alive” to me. There’s a reason she’s my favorite author.

      Thanks for visiting 🙂

  2. These three women sound like admirable role models! I’ll have to pick up the series sometime!

      They were amazingly written. It just happened that the three together had everything I needed. It’s a romance of course, but it’s also a paranormal in that the three women are witches fighting an ancient evil. It was well done.

      Thanks for visiting 🙂

    I enjoyed them, the series is often re-read. Thank you for the follow, I have returned the follow.

      It’s an oddly empowering feeling when you realize that something fictional has added to your own self-growth. I expect that from self-help books not by escaping into another world.

      Thanks for visiting 🙂

      Thank you! I’d have to agree. I wish I had been inspired to “do” but my reading has had more of an influence on how I act or react to life. And maybe that’s inspiration’s cousin.

      Thanks for visiting 🙂

      Thank you. Sometimes there are books that touch a part of us for some unknown reason and fiction becomes reality. Those are the reading moments that I cherish.

      I’m an old follower of yours and thank you for the follow. 🙂
