What People are Saying

Amber Skylar pulls no punches and makes no excuses as she excavates the darkest moments of an extraordinary life. Though I sensed the oncoming train in one chapter after another, I could not look away. Her story is a compelling view of a woman’s experience, one from which young women can take counsel and older ones nod in recall of our own past in an awakening “me too” American culture. The fact she lives today a successful life is a testament to human resilience. I could not put it down, even as it made an indelible footprint in my heart.

Cuts to the Quick of a Woman's Experience, Betty Bartmann, 5 out of 5 stars for Colors of Amber

Written with raw honesty and candor, Colors of Amber is an intelligent, well-written and thoughtful memoir dealing with hardship, love, learning, growing and the strength of the human spirit. It will move and touch the heart of any reader.

The extreme adversity and tough times the author goes through in the early chapters is tragic, but it sets the stage for her journey and overcoming obstacles that forms the foundation for an inspiring read. The strength of the author’s spirit comes through in the end, having learned some tough lessons and in the end being stronger for it.

An Honest and Insightful Look at Dealing with Adversity and Bouncing Back, Darren M Broemmer, 5 out of 5 stars for Colors of Amber

As a therapist, I spend a great deal of time and energy listening to individuals recount their “story”… It’s an essential part of the therapeutic process, and it requires an incredible amount of trust on the part of the patient. Amber has lit a path for anyone seeking redemption and/or freedom from the yoke of their pasts. Her story is written with an honesty and openness from which every reader can learn. It exemplifies the depths one must reach in order to attain a way out of the abyss.

Im tired of reading/listening to the challenges we are facing. We are already facing them. This is life. It is critical now that we uplift and encourage our workers, families and each other. History has ennumerable examples of perseverance, strength and resilience. COVID, politics, abuse cannot take us out. We will get through holidays, sickness, stress - because we can. Leaders step up your game. Face the problems with solutions. I say, "Game on"! Lead your people. Stop telling them how difficult it is when they already know.

Madness.
The black dog is tied up again.
…is he lonely, do they treat him well?
Four cops came to my neighbor’s house.
…Is he a criminal? What’s going on?
55 year old male Veteran jumps off bridge. It was suicide.
…hey that’s just down the street…walking distance.
Google News - Scroll glance, scroll stop. Child raped; father captured.
…I can’t read this.
Scroll, scroll, fires, guns, arrogant (that is not harsh enough) politicians still ranting enjoying popularity.
…does anybody else read this?
Google Search has the ERA been ratified yet?
…WTF, yes Virginia was the 3d remaining state to sign for EQUAL RIGHTS in spring 2020
TikTok – show your ass, your face and give away your data for human conditioning, social control, mind control.
…am I paranoid and just think I’m smart?
Holidays coming 2100 families in my small town that do not have enough food.
…does one meal even matter?
Worldometer – 848 million undernourished humans, 1.7 trillion obese humans
… brain can you figure this?
Scroll, World News maybe skip COVID stuff…oops priest in Italy sexually molests his alter boy, 2014 reported…Vatican covered it up - there is a witness.
…PRIESTS! Sex! And all this religious crap, bs, God really?
How did I learn to love the black sky and the bright stars?
…there is a lot of gas and explosions - all I can see is the Big Dipper…
Rich privileged people – poor people.
…. same story different century.
Lake Helena, cold wind, rippling water snow coming, temperatures dropping.
…I conjure up my mother… peacefully dead and smiling at me- her red skirt, yellow top and hair. She hugs bundled tears out of my body.
Walk my dog Arbor, that black dog is still tied up.
…he was a pup; I’ve seen him grow like all of my neighbors and we all look the other way.
