Hello and welcome to my review of “The Hearts Journey Home.” By Natalie Ducey.
With a BA in Psychology, Natalie has had the privilege of working in the counselling field for approximately 15 years. Through her work and personal journey, she has witnessed the remarkable power of the human spirit.
In her own words she explains, “The potential of the human spirit has always amazed me. Through poetry, I try to capture the essence of the fragility and the resiliency of our hearts – the brilliant beauty of life’s journey. I believe we are connected by similar and relatable experiences. We all love/loved deeply and most likely have been on both sides of goodbye. We know the exquisite and profound beauty of love. We know the immobilizing force of grief and the anguish between letting go and holding on. We know the acute distinction between second chances and new beginnings.
It’s majestic and mystifying, and every day we are granted the opportunity to begin again. Let’s enjoy the Journey!
Natalie was born and raised in Newfoundland, Canada, with her two brothers and twin sister. She now resides in Ontario, Canada, with her husband, a Soldier in the Canadian Armed Forces, and their little dog, Bella. She enjoys kayaking and the freedom and serenity of being one with water. She is an avid reader, passionate writer, and seeker of tranquility along life’s mystifying journey.
In February 2015, Natalie published her first book of poetry – The Heart’s Journey Home, a collection of 23 poems celebrating the brilliant beauty of life’s journey.

The Hearts Journey Home by Natalie Ducey.
Poetry for the soul. The Heart’s Journey Home is a collection of 23 poems that capture the essence of the fragility and the resiliency of our hearts – the brilliant beauty of life’s journey. We all love/loved deeply and most likely have been on both sides of goodbye. We know the immobilizing force of grief; we experienced hardships that have brought tears, revelations, and self-discoveries of strength unknown. These trials could easily dishearten us, but instead we choose to be more loving, compassionate, and kind. That is worth celebrating.
The Heart’s Journey Home is a celebration of our heart’s journey through life’s majestic beauty. The collection includes 23 poems titled: Reckless Words, Borrowed Angel, Nobody’s Fool, Silence of the Heart, Love’s Illusion, Fallen Angel, Let’s Dance, Where Does the Love Go, Young Love, Small Town Girl, Winter’s Gift, Destined to Fly, Eternal Love, The War Within, To my Sister on our 40th Birthday, Goodbye without Warning, Old Oak Tree, Names in the Sand, Can’t Let Go, Memories Linger, Caged Bird Sings, Surrender, and Heart’s Journey Home.
MY REVIEW: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Author Natalie Ducey has penned a poetic journey here, and she has done it in a way that allows us to not only glimpse her private journey, but to celebrate and reflect on our own.
Each poem is written with a pen dipped deeply into her heart and her experiences.
The comfort of reading poetry such as this can’t be overlooked. I found comfort in the knowledge that I am not alone in experiencing loss, love, and the pain of letting go.
Author Natalie Ducey reaches into that secret place we all try so hard to shield, and with her words she invites you to remember, laugh, cry, and say goodbye.
I purchased this as a gift to myself. I will be purchasing other copies as a gift to dear ones I hold close. Such is the measure of my pleasure in reading this work.
