“Author Richard Lee Orey pens a breathtaking account of brutality, courage, romance and a quest to usurp Satan as he casts his evil temptations upon his victims.

An extraordinary book, deserving of a five-star review.”

Vow!! Vow!! This poem is so, so refreshing to me. I kept on reading it over and over again, it is a poem that generations to come would appreciate, and find comfort in. Be Still and Hear My Voice is exactly what God is saying to all of us.
Be Still and Hear My Voice touches a core deep in my heart and soul.
“You have left me speechless. Your work is perennial...timeless, eternal...You are my kind of poet...love it.”
“I love the perspective this was written from in allowing us to hear the "voice" of the garden. The author is attentive to every detail, every aspect of the garden -- the sky, the environs, the plants, the statuary, and even the air -- regaling the reader with a 360 degree experience of the subject. The structure and style of the poem lend themselves to the topic, leading the reader easily through each stanza with the easy flow of the rhyme. Exquisitely crafted.”
