"I just finished reading Yvonne Pierre’s wonderfully inspiring book 'The Day My Soul Cried' last night. A moving tale of a woman’s inner strength and courage to rise above all odds stacked against her. I found myself thinking of the women in my life, knowing each of them will be given wings, by reading Yvonne’s story." - Jo Latino, author “Death of a Drama Queen”
"Yvonne's engaging life stories and perspectives will take you on an emotional and spiritual journey. The Day my Soul Cried is touching, challenging and thought-provoking.
Maya Angelou said "We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty." Yvonne Pierre shares the changes she went through to achieve her goals. This inspirational journey is a valuable tool and will challenge readers to reclaim their dreams." - Glenifer, host of "Extraordinary People" on Channel 24 Atlanta
"Over the years, I have initiated the reading of numerous books that fall into the category of what is known as Memoirs, and generally never complete them. This one I did complete, and in one sitting. I was immediately captivated by it, and then overwhelmed by memories of my own idyllic beginnings -- carefree innocence, the very essence of ebullience. Lamentably, this euphoria was brief, as I then found myself engrossed in the authoress's harrowing experiences as a child and young adult. She conveys the intense anguish and confusion that was felt by the little girl of her past extremely well.
As I was led through the writer's pilgrimage I was powerfully inundated with feelings and emotions of both joy and misery; The Day My Soul Cried is not an evanescent read, it will stay with you.
By its conclusion, I was satisfied in the idea that Yvonne Pierre had reached her destination. I think anyone could relate to and appreciate this piquant account of life; as it seems the multitudinous sorrows and pitfalls that are inescapable in this world, may only be nullified by overcoming them. This book is a shining example of aspiration and determination. Congratulations on a stirring recountal." - Professor Diogenes Vindex, author of 'So it Was Written'
"Yvonne Pierre's "The Day my Soul Cried" takes the reader on a journey through some very emotional waters. The raw feelings experienced by Yvonne are something that are hard for some people to imagine, but she explains it in a way that makes you feel like you were there. This book is certainly an uplifting read for anyone who has ever felt like they were at the bottom." - Charity Cason, author of "How Moms are Making Money Selling on eBay"
