The Portal

by Donna Villani

What else is there to be revealed when the past, present, and future collide? All in one book is a mysterious, spiritual, and dramatic compilation of experiences mainly by the Armstrongs and Banks family who start the quest of discovering and fighting a new breed of cats, storms, and grieving since Ricky’s mother, the sister of Colleen Armstrong succumbed to death after giving birth. Divided into two parts, Donna Eimer Villani’s The Portal introduces many life lessons to reflect upon. Losses after losses and gains afterward, each character in the book has spirited responses to the problems they have encountered.

Reconciliation between family members and the formation of new love begins in Driftwood, where hopes and questions for a fast-paced turn of life events unfold.

Traumatic experiences by Colleen, Geoff, Ricky, and all the other supporting characters dramatically present heart- warming lessons for readers who have a hard time recovering. Colleen’s questions regarding her roots and the mystery of blue light, and her search for the compost, will surely keep the readers craving more. The discussion on innovation and the changing needs of their communities reflects empowerment over struggles, which can also be relatable.
