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.

I choose Service. I choose Strength. Vigilance in both.

...united we stand...divided we fall...makes sense to me. I keep an eye on the choas, violence, disagreements etc. - im not even sure exactly what the specific arguments are, or who all the players are..

I know how easy it is to manipulate group thinking and behavior and that our enemies are very savvy at using technology and AI as well as cyber attacks to infiltrate minds, vital systems, individuals...to divide us - that much I know.

I choose to see both sides...I choose to stand in the middle of something I cannot control, and maintain strength - for the innocent caught in the middle. Violence is not the answer and yet it has been used historically as a weapon of fear and control. Quite successfully I might add.

Can you meet your fear?

Strength - courage to look directly at the challenge. Wisdom is to decide your own role in this. This is not the time to shroud in fear, hide under blankets of anxiety, but to prepare for what's coming. Health. Family. Food, clothing shelter water. Keep yourself strong so that you may avail yourself to helping those in need.

They will come.

I choose Service. I choose Strength. I choose to stay strong and healthy. I choose to breath into my body what I believe about human decency, kindness. I choose to see that what is going on has only moved from the shadows and into the light. I choose to recognize that I have power, to not react (unless in danger), but to be available to support, uplift and care for those caught in the middle.
