The BookViral Review:

In a poignant journal of love and loss, Jason Delaney takes his readers on a powerfully emotive journey as he pens an evocative collection of rhyming verses.

Devastatingly emotional, ‘From Darkness to Light’ is daringly honest and sometimes brutal in its frankness, daring to venture into the minds of the troubled and strip loss and pain down to its bare bones.

Conforming to traditional rhyme and stanza, Delaney’s poetry is lilting and elegant in form, and flows effortlessly, in a juxtaposition of comfort and pain.

A self-confessed empath who dips often into the darkness, Delaney demonstrates an acute understanding of the human condition, and its tendency to fluctuate in mood and emotion.

His verse is an unapologetic and transparent confession of his own struggles with mental health, and a hand of understanding and shared experience, as he seeks to cleanse both his own soul and enable the same in his readers.

Composing his prose from both sides of the grave, Delaney reaches out with comforting words towards those who have suffered the loss of a loved one, whilst rejoicing in the shared love of those not separated, thus creating a bond of closeness between the two, such as in the beautiful poem, ‘Senses’, in which a voice from beyond manifests itself in the wonder of nature and reminiscence.

With a self-confessed desire to create inclusivity for those who struggle with their mental health, Delaney shows through his verse that fragility is not a weakness, but rather a vehicle by which greater compassion can flow, as he widens his family circle to embrace others who are similarly affected.

A book which demands self-reflection, ‘From Darkness to Light’ is recommended for all who desire understanding and comfort, and who wish to find lightness and happiness in an often darkened world.
