The Anessa Series written by Margot Hawk includes three beautifully written stories of young Anessa. The series includes Anessa’s Gift, Anessa’s Loss, and Anessa’s Love.
Anessa and her friends are out in the world, learning, working and falling in love. Anessa meets her “prince charming” and finds out that not all princes who are charming can stay that way through a long term commitment. The third novel in the Anessa series explores romantic love. Our heroine falls in love, marries, divorces, and wonders, “What is it all about this being in love with another?” Working with her dear friends and wise-people, she learns much about giving up herself to be with this person she loves and where that takes her. Having given up most of her spiritual side, her mirror work and listening to her inner counsel, she questions herself because of her choices. During her explorations she meets with her grandmother, whom she calls MomMom, and MomMom’s fiancé, Carlton. They gather with many other men and women to research the work and fun it takes to have a relationship and keep it rich, even in emergency situations. Can human beings really have the kind of spiritual and sexual relationship that these people desire? Finding her way back to her truth and center she meets, works with, and falls in love with Matayah who wants the kind of relationship she wants—the kind we all want. After two years of “practice, practice, practice,” they are challenged in a way they never anticipated. An enlightening, experiential novel written with mature wisdom and depth of insight from the heart, Anessa’s Love brings to light valuable nuggets of learning how to cope through some of those “who am I ” stages of life: doubts, fears, “What happened? Everything was going just right.” Taking the reading from soaring bliss to crushing betrayal, disappointment, despair and coming through it all by standing in one’s truth, this novel is an inspiring, uplifting, and entertaining read.

Reviews for Anessa’s Gift
A must read for all, July 28, 2012- By Diane k – Paperback
Anessa’s gift could be a resource that can be used by both young and old. This book would have great impact if it was presented to all middle school children and their parents, giving young people the opportunity to relate their own personal experiences to Anessa’s story and giving parents the tools to assist them.
