Linda Pestana truly opens her heart in her aptly title memoir, “Voices of the Heart”. She writes engrossingly about a turbulent period in her life that propelled her to make a decision that changed the course of her life forever. All the while, her faith never waivered. In fact, it got fueled.

The book, voices of the heart by Linda Pestana, was the most honest, authentic, moving, and amazing memoir I’ve read. It spoke to my heart and filled my spirit with hope and possibility. I highly recommend this book to all who wish to grow emotionally and spiritually. I assure you that you won’t be disappointed.

As a person whose foundation of life was built on pain, suffering, abuse, anger, and rage, it took incredible change to pull me up from Rock Bottom. I credit my metamorphosis to the amazing people I have met along the way that helped me realize that when hate drives you, you are destined to fail, but when the heart guides you, you can’t help but to succeed. So one of the people I met in my life that instantly made me feel the unconditional love from the heart was Linda Pestana. If anyone’s aura can bring out the good in all people, it is Linda, her amazing book, stories, and it lifted me to feel at peace and to believe that there are people out there that do love from the heart at first sight. She is an example and an inspiration to how caring straight from the heart changes the world.

Thank you for writing this book!

A beautifully written book with such honesty in its sharing. It is a journey that will inspire you to look inside to find your own truth, just as Linda did, and to face the new challenges that will bring in doing so. It’s a perfect example of always listening to your own voice and the courage that is required to do so. I feel a huge change inside me because of reading this book. It has inspired me to move forward. Thank you.”

Thank you so much for having written this book. At times, I laughed- but more often, what you wrote brought tears to my eyes. I am so happy for you that things in your life were ‘arranged’ by God such that with your cooperation, they worked out as they did. I also got to understand the importance to enter the deep recesses of the ‘basement’ of one’s heart and look for what ‘in your case’ was a beat-up chest filled with fear. I admire you deeply for having found the courage to honestly face what was there. There is nothing like your book that brought home to me with such force the unique and irreplaceable nature of each and every individual human being; the impossibility of exchanging one human person for another.

Thank you very, very much for everything!”

A compelling read inward to love through difficult choices as a devout nun. “Don’t wait to live your life… live it now” is a motto that Linda Pestana shares in her book, “Voices of the Heart”. Linda’s life experience has paved a path for her own healing and growth, leading to a story with universal appeal. Working for many years with end of life issues, Linda has learned not to dance around life experiences… but rather offers answers to issues in the confrontation of truth. This book shows the reader a roadmap to do the healing and inner work within so as to open the door to a life of purpose, hope, and inner freedom. This book will not only change the way you look at life, but it will change the way you look at your own life, and challenge you to want more.

I read your book “Voices of the Heart” and it was so moving. I feel very grateful to have had the opportunity to read about your life and how your faith has carried you through it. I struggle with my faith and you offer so many examples of how, when we question our faith, it becomes stronger, not weaker. Thank you for your gift of insight. Yours is a book I know I will return to again and again.”

I want you to know that I really loved your book “Voices of the Heart”. It was raw and so personal. I honestly got teary-eyed at least ten times. It was wonderful! I am so happy that you are putting it out there for the whole world to experience. If nothing else, it will help people to see that you can conquer anything even though, “in the moment,” it may seem like things are impossible. I also love the parts where you point out that sometimes, all we ever want is someone to really listen to us. That is so profound and so true.

You are a wonderful person and I am sure your ‘message’ will help so many.

Hi Linda,

It isn’t always possible to have the opportunity to write to an author, which you have so easily invited your readers to do. I am accepting your invitation as I can’t wait to thank you for sharing your journey of Faith, Hope, and Love. It is so delicately and detailed in the Voices of the Heart. I am a firm believer that there is a time and a season appointed for everything. This leads me to think that I was meant to read your book at this time. I don’t know when or how I obtained a signed copy. I am still trying to solve that mystery. Once I discovered it, I was compelled to continue reading it. I admire you deeply for sharing your journey of faith.

D. Thibault

As you turn each page of “Voices of the Heart” you will be inspired as Linda faces each challenge with gratitude and respect. This book is a thoughtful and profound gift for anyone struggling with a life changing choice. Linda’s final transformation came when she made the choice of her heart, accepting and loving herself. You will find that Linda’s story will give you strength in allowing yourself to love and be loved.
