Waiting for minimum critic reviews


"This book depicts the love of nature and people by this author who worked for the United Nations and its peacekeeping operations in three troubled countries of the world. The nineteen poems in this collection are of varied subjects. During her leisure time while she was temporarily assigned to those troubled countries, she devoted herself to writing articles and poems just as a brain twister.

In this book, the author talks of the various inspirations that led her to write the poems. After retirement from the United Nations, this author started to gather and compile all her poems some of which are filled with emotions as a mother and as a friend; some are tributes to famous people and international personalities; some are delightful and pleasant; and some are of ordinary living and love of nature. Each poem tells a story and the book is very informative to read – one that you will not put down until you reach the conclusion….a must read book!

About Connie P. Frias

See more books from this Author
Connie worked for the United Nations Development Programme in New York City and in between her tenure with UNDP she would be selected by the Department of Peacekeeping Operations of the United Nations to go on temporary peacekeeping assignments, on three different times, in three troubled countries of the world as Angola, Kosovo and the Republic of Georgia. As a peacekeeper, Connie had contributed greatly not only to the work of the United Nations but also to the welfare of the peacekeepers' community in the mission area by introducing various recreational activities. Being aware of the dangers that encompass any peacekeeping operations, Connie would remain embedded in the operations compound to avoid what she calls as "being in the wrong place at the wrong time". During her leisure time, she would resort to writing articles and poems. Most of her writings had been published in its respective mission magazines. This gave her the idea to compile her poems and complete her book entitled Collection of Peacekeeping-Inspired Poetry.
