"Dreaming in Darkness" isn't your average "rags to riches" story. There are too many of those out there. No, this is a stunningly raw look at a woman's journey from love and loss and a staggering pain to a slow, gently budding hope. From darkness to that first tentative tiptoe into the light. From anger and tears to soft, gentle touches and whispered words lifted up to the night sky.
The moments in this book, from the familiar, poignant ache of lost love in "Almost Lover" to the gentle transformation in "Red & Blue Alice", are guaranteed to touch your heart. Jess Kristie doesn't pull any punches as she takes us along her path, reminding us that sometimes in life we win, pull ourselves up and start over again...but sometimes we don't. Sometimes there are moments in life that change us so profoundly that we have no choice but to become what life has shaped us, destined us to be.
Life isn't the destination. It's the journey, and the days you spend dreaming in darkness before stepping out into your own new beginning.
Extraordinary work from an extraordinary author.
