Sheridan is the author of five books, including the forthcoming memoir Resurrection Year: Turning Broken Dreams into New Beginnings (releasing Tuesday May 28, 2013).

As a professional editor and proofreader, I interact with manuscripts of all kinds. Some cause me to shake my head and wonder why a publisher would even entertain such jumble; some give pause to meditate and ponder; some are cutesy and lighthearted and draw an occasional laugh-out-loud. I objectively welcome them all; they are important and they are my life's work.

And then came RESURRECTION YEAR.

I HAD to finish it; it was my job. No other book has shaken my soul like RESURRECTION YEAR. I painstakingly turned every page, one to the next, often thrusting it aside because I Could.Not.Take.Any.More wear on my heart, only to return to it to discover another heartbreak, another setback, another death of a dream, and another reason to seek--and find--God's goodness and personal presence in every detail of brokenness and existence.

HE: The husband who, moment by gut-wrenching moment, exemplifies the marriage of Christ and His Church to his wife, through piercing empathy, monumental sacrifice, and unconditional, UNCONDITIONAL, love.

SHE: The wife who faithfully renders herself daily to the tasks she's been given: her job, her family, her friends, her church, while the ONE ASSIGNMENT she longs for never comes along. Daily she witnesses the fulfillment of dreams of those around her while daily her own dream returns to the graveyard. Day after day. Year after grueling year.

Sheridan Voysey was a successful radio broadcaster with a loyal following across Australia, when in 2011, at the peak of his career, he suddenly quit and disappeared overseas.

In Resurrection Year, Voysey reveals that he and his wife Merryn had concluded a devastating ten-year battle with infertility. Their dream of bearing a child dashed, the pair had left all they know pursue his wife's "consolation prize"- an international working adventure.

This compelling book follows the couple's journey from ruined hope to new horizons. It takes us deep into the heart of their private lives - from the bedroom, to the boardroom, to the doctor's surgery, to emotion-charged prayer meetings. We read of their medical battles, their fears, identity struggles, and spiritual questioning: Is God good? Mean? Silent? Why don't fairytales come true?

Refreshingly, though, this is no heavy-going treatise on pain and suffering. The writing is artistic, metaphoric, at times cinematic, and seasoned often with colour, fun, and Voysey's self-effacing comic wit - attributes that his radio fans would be familiar with. I had plenty of big laughs, in between my tears. And when the pair travel Europe in search of answers and restoration, it's as pretty as a picture book - as they slow down in Italy, seek answers in the Swiss Alps, get lost in the maze of Venice, lose themselves in Rome's ancient architecture, and revel in Oxford's rich history.

Part memoir, part travel journal, part theology, part philosophy, and in all parts love-story, Resurrection Year is a beautiful, uplifting, and deeply thoughtful work. It offers real, universal hope, for anyone who's faced disappointment. Which is most of us. Not a schmaltzy promise of fairytales coming true, but an assurance that, even after the most dead and shattered of dreams, God can bring wonderful, invigorating new life.

Format: Paperback
I made a mistake. I picked up Resurrection Year at 11pm one winter's evening to read the opening chapter so I could decide whether I would enjoy reading this book with such an enticing title. At 3am I really had to put it down knowing I had work the next morning. The story of Sheridan and Merryn Voysey's journey towards a Resurrection Year is deeply moving, personal and full of grating anguish. While I had a hint of knowing what was in store, it can't prepare you for the way in which Sheridan rolls out years of stumbling steps towards a broken dream.

The story connects with all of us who have suffered loss or driven down a one way street thinking it was the short-cut to the `highway'. I had just recently suffered my own dead end street and I was reading `Resurrection Year to find the answer I had missed in my own journey. I thought Sheridan might have a magic answer. I hoped he had found the 12th step in some program where I'd only found 11. The reality is that Sheridan takes us through the heart-break of a journey that doesn't as much go around the mountain as it instead goes up and over mountain after mountain experiencing the valley floor and then the pinnacle view, only to head to the valley again.

Sheridan's writing takes you visually through their experience in a journey that travels around the world taking in the life of this Australian writer and broadcaster in his land down under before a trip to the romance of Europe and then embracing the life that a little flat in England might offer on the edge of Oxford University. As he looks for hope, Sheridan absorbs any possible hint of beauty in nature and architecture.
