It's been a long while since I read a book so thought-provoking and relevant to my own life. Ms. Carson is a story-teller of unequaled talent; I've read other writings of hers and always come away taller, more peaceful and imbued with a greater sense of dignity than before. Having grown up in the Southwest, I hail from a beautiful tri-culture that allows me to see her writing in any venue as being deeply infused with what I call "coyote wisdom" (about soul and mind), as she brings us along on a journey filled with insights and images that break us out of our frozen-heart places and fully transform our awareness. Hers is truly a deep and profound intelligence.
"Dying To Know" provides insights into a person's hidden fears and hurts that often underlie and contribute to or even cause the development of many physical and psychological problems, and also suggests a variety of ancient and timeless solutions which inspire hope that change is possible. Her characters are richly believable and worm their way into your heart with total ease. The author guides us like a life compass, showing us what's good and lasting about our own selves as well as about humanity. In reading the book it reaffirmed my belief that we are all interconnected...and that brought me comfort. You will probably find yourself highlighting every other paragraph as I did.Read more ›
But soon, you become enmeshed in her journey to search out a more peaceful way of life, in order to cure herself. The friends she starts with and those she pulls around her are very well-drawn. We know them, like our own circle of friends. Carson spares none of them from the glare of inspection. They are all affected by Callie's journey, in one way or another.
In the meantime, she finds love in the person of Joe, a longtime friend and he assists her in finding the right path for her. An Inuit, he's wise in ways the Western world doesn't understand, as is her Chinese friend Mary, another partner in her search.
You must read this book. You will find yourself looking at your own life differently. Christina Carson is a fearless writer and I found myself picking out favorite phrases from the book. I know I will read this one again and soon.
Cleverly written into the book are universal messages of healing. One must confront and deal with their personal demons and find the root causes to the symptoms their body expresses. This is the path the main character takes, with all her emotional ups and downs, eventually to discovery. Discovery of what it truly means to be free, to be human, to be happy, and to be healthy.
If you're looking for a well-written book, with depth, layers, and meaning, this is one you shouldn't pass up.
