From Helen Bawden
Rebecca Hosking’s new ebook, Words & Music – THE STORY BEHIND THE SONG, is a heartfelt book telling the stories behind the songs she wrote on the album Safe Haven. They celebrate unplanned moments, love, loss, resurrection, doing things anyway whatever the outcome, intuition, being ‘out there’ on her own, impermanence, support. She says ‘if you want to know the real me, simply listen to my music, my lyrics never lie’.

Review of Words and Music Rebecca Hosking
The Story Behind the Song
As I read this, I felt as though Rebecca was in the room with me, so conversational was her style, yet her eloquence pulled me up sharply with its aching honesty. The ideas and images she writes about are so vivid, the metaphors so apt, that everything she says is easy to understand and inspires empathy.
The overriding message of this story is one of positivity, in fact, much of Rebecca’s writing is inspirational.
I especially liked the idea that even the bad times can be made useful, by incorporating the feelings into a song! ‘As I trip over myself and try again’ (In Over My Head) In ‘A Hard Dream To Sell’, Rebecca urges us to follow our dreams, even though it’s difficult to combine dream-chasing with reality.
I enjoyed ‘Riding Shotgun’ – it is full of the courage it takes to launch off on your own. It ties in well with A Hard Dream to Sell – we have to carry on with that dream-chasing and change it into reality.
My favourite of all is ‘Safe Haven’ – many of us have a happy place – our den, the garden, the beach, but the idea of a safe haven within oneself had never occurred to me. Rebecca has offered me ‘ a doorway into a corridor’. Brilliant metaphor!
This story behind the song is achingly honest, not least in ‘Trouble Comforting ‘ – perhaps we heal ourselves, in helping others. The idea of impermanence is reassuring – even the worst pain passes in time, even if we have to ‘stumble through it’!
I’m so glad I discovered both the songs and the story behind them. Rebecca has made me think, inspired and comforted me. I will remember her words.

Below are reviews for Rebecca’s beautiful collection of poetry and artwork.
From Nicola Heales:
Just wanted you to know how much I loved Rebecca Hosking’s book. When I was reading them I got lost in them and felt like Rebecca was writing things about my own life.
From Helen Bawden:
I have just finished reading the wonderful book of poems ‘Melantha’s Storm’ written by Rebecca Hosking. They met me right where my heart is, where the stuff if real life, growth, acceptance and change is. I wanted to say ‘Oh! You too?’ Many of us long to feel met where we really are. This book, this writer, does exactly that. Definitely to be recommended! Five stars from me!
