  Inspirational and Timeless , 03/12/2006
Reviewer: Heather Froeschl
In a story that is full of beautifully descriptive moments, the reader is led through one soul's journey and is allowed to witness its transitions. "Many Faces" communicates with nature and her surrounding elements, she is guided by faith and truth, and eventually comes to find herself. Judy Azar LeBlanc has written a memorable book that is inspirational and timeless. Her creativity abounds and her ability to impart words of wisdom through her characters is uniquely executed. You won't soon forget the journey in this tale and may be inspired to take a closer look at your own. Heather Froeschl@Bookreview.com

  Short but Powerful , 03/12/2006
Reviewer: Daniel Jolley
Many Faces To Many Places by Judy Azar Leblanc A short but powerful, inspirational read You look at this little book, and a part of you sees it as just another allegorical treatment of the spiritual journey to fulfillment in life. There's nothing new here, you might think. You might even wonder if you'll get anything out of the book at all. As I started reading it myself, I had a few doubts of my own. This seemed like another happy-feely book set in a world of flowers and beauty, tracing an allegorical path that was just too easy. Then a funny thing happened; the book didn't end when the main character found her happy place. Instead, it took a drastic turn down into the valley of loss and trial before finally forging a path back toward faith and fulfillment.

  Wildly and Wonderfully Imaginative , 03/12/2006
Reviewer: Jeffrey Leach
The real value of the book is putting yourself in Many Faces's place when she first encounters the wonders of love, truth, and happiness as well as the dangers represented by materialism and vice. On more than one occasion, early memories of my life flashed before my mind's eye as I recalled how I too dealt with newfound experiences and emotions and, like everyone else, became a fuller person because of it. I heartily recommend spending the hour or two it takes to read "Many Faces to Many Places." It's more than likely that you'll consider it time well spent.

  I especially liked the easy style , 03/12/2006
Reviewer: Swamy Swarna
"Many Faces to Many Places - A Story" by Judy is a highly readable, philosophical / spiritual fantasy. Using allegory and symbolism, Judy tells very eloquently the problem that all of us face at some time or other in our life. Many Faces is the girl in this story, who escapes from a witch and goes on a journey to seek fulfillment. She meets many spirits in various shapes, sizes and is guided by them. She goes through a dark spiritual desert of lust, greed etc., and comes out successfully. She meets a Veiled Man, a fatherly figure, full of wisdom and love. When he hugs her and lifts his veil, he disappears and she finds that he is no other than her indweller. This book touched a respondent chord in my heart since Judy's philosophy is very similar to our eastern philosophy. I especially liked the easy style of Judy. The symbolism is not difficult to understand. I recommend the book strongly.

  An effectively instructional read , 03/13/2006
Reviewer: R.R. Bowker
"Many Faces to Many Places," by Judy Azar LeBlanc, is perhaps best described by the author herself, who calls it "a story of the adventurous journey of a courageous spirit" in search of freedom. Through it, LeBlanc also tells the more universal story of the human quest for understanding and knowledge. Many Faces, a spirit force, escapes from a witch's prison to taste freedom and encounters incidents and people that serve as wonderful allegories for human life. LeBlanc's fluid, attractive prose draws the reader into the inspirational and insightful story, making "Many Faces to Many Places" an effectively instructional read. R R. Bowker BookWire Review February 17, 2006

  Worth a look , 03/13/2006
Reviewer: Armchair Reviews
This story is the adventure of Many Faces, a spirit finding her own way along her life's journey. It is a classic tale of rise, fall and rebirth. The unique twist to this often-told tale is the allegorical style. Many Faces encounters creatures such as "Eyes of faith," "Deception" and "Happiness" while gliding through her life. On her journey, she experiences a dark night of the soul full of pain and anguish and ultimately a rebirth into the light.

  Bravo! Excellent! , 06/06/2006
Reviewer: Ray Ward
This Weeks SPOTLIGHT book - May 2006 Very rarely a book comes along that impresses me with its wit, charm and clarity in dealing with all the emotions, traits and frailties of the complex animal known as human beings, as well as Many Faces to Many Places by Judy Azar LeBlanc. LeBlanc’s latest book shines like a diamond in a coal mine and is a gem is of rare quality indeed. Her metaphors are unique and crystal clear and offer insight and timeless wisdom into the art of living life to its fullest. Her use of familiar characters in a very illuminating manner brought smile after smile to my face as I read this nearly magical book. To author Judy Azar LeBlanc, Bravo! Excellent! Many Faces to Many Places is an outstanding, thoroughly enjoyable, and powerful book. One that everyone should read, and a book that anyone reading it will benefit.

  Thought Provoking and a well told tale , 06/09/2006
Reviewer: Anne
This is a tale of spiritual growth of the individual as represented by the character known as Many Faces which might represent the stages of change in the person as they grow. Locked in a cabin and guarded by an ugly witch, both which represent inner isolation and ignorance, Many Faces finally succeeds in escaping into the world where she will meet many characters and have many adventures that represent change and growth as one learns about the world. A study in understanding ourselves as we reach enlightenment. For any reader who wishes to know more about themselves and the world, this might serve as a guide and help one see what obstacles must be overcome on this journey of self. Thought provoking and a well told tale. Enjoy. Review by Anne K. Edwards 05/27/06 http://www.mysteryfiction.net

  MAGICAL , 11/27/2006
Reviewer: Marina Hernandez
The book, Many Faces to Many Places, is a mystical story with a touch of magical realism as a young girl (Many Faces) creates and discovers the spiritual journey to her self. Many Face's journey represents the human search for ourselves and along the way we encounter life's obstacles or struggles which sometimes cause us to lose and gain new faith. The nature characters fit very well in the story because they assist in Many Faces' self discovery and her spiritual development process. As a reader, the story became so personal and real to me that I sometimes felt as if I was living the story and that I had met the characters. The personality of the nature characters can be compared to real people that we meet in our lives as we conjure them up because of our self-perceptions at the time of our personal development; which can help us mature spiritually or keep us stagnant. The way we view ourselves will determine the way we will view others and the world. The main character, Many Faces, makes you look at your spiritual phase in life right now and inspires you to continue developing the soul. Marina Maria Hernandez
