“Listen, Listen To My Heart’s Song is a memoir featuring stories collected by M. Barrett Miller throughout his decades of travels across multiple continents, meeting people who inspired him through their words or acts of kindness and generosity. In Rufus River, one of his friends relates his encounter with a taipan snake at an ancient Aboriginal site in the wilds of Cape York Peninsula. In Michael’s Story, a resourceful student at Seattle University assembles students, alumni, and friends to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina. One of Miller’s best friends introduces football to girls with HIV in South Africa. Tom’s Story is about a newly recruited teacher in a predominantly black school in the deep south of America leading his students to glory, despite racism and bigotry.
An inspirational book that makes you want to be a better person, Listen, Listen To My Heart’s Song reflects the sacrifices and efforts made by humans all over the world to make this planet a better place to live. Author M. Barrett Miller draws from his personal experiences and relates uplifting and heartfelt stories about and from people he encountered throughout his life. Traversing multiple continents and featuring people from different backgrounds, ethnicities, and walks of life, the narrative delves into various topics. However, each chapter incorporates similar themes, showcasing the hope, kindness, and perseverance of human beings. Although I enjoyed them all, my personal favorite was the one where a Native American youth from South Seattle overcomes growing up without parents with an alcoholic for an uncle to become a beacon of hope amongst his peers.
