More About the Author

My Twitter bio said writer, poet, explorer and mystic and that probably says it all quite neatly.
I've written stories my whole life, even before I could actually read. My father mistakenly allowed me to use his typewriter from an early age and I was hooked. I'm not sure the typewriter survived very long having me bash out strings of letters in the belief that what I had in my head would magically transform into words others can read. I've got better at that.
I write novels, short stories and poetry, and I also blog at http://zenandtheartoftightropewalking.wordpress.com

Format: Paperback
Six characters with different traumas/heartbreaks type the same sentence in a web search and end up accepted for a retreat at the House of the Wellspring, hosted by a mysterious Warden who never shows up - or does s/he? Six stories of self-healing through creating a relationship with another suffering human being in the era of Google and other web-crawlers.
I was very touched by all the stories (I have suffered from anxiety and panic attacks even if not at their level) and loved the way the author matched the "illnesses". I won't spoil the fun for whoever would like to read this book, that I recommend even if you've never been depressed, or heartbroken, before.

I'm not one for writing reviews mostly because I'm just not good at it. In this case, I read the book initially because I noticed a review for one of my own novels by this author and decided to pick up hers. I discovered i really enjoyed her writing style, and I struggled for a long while as to whether I should review the book because I wanted to avoid looking like I was just swapping.

I offer that disclaimer in the spirit of transparency, but the book really needs none.

This story was so inspirational to me. I read it quickly during a few summer days after I first bought it and then opened it up again a few months later because I needed a pick-me-up. For me to read a book twice at all is saying something.--twice in a few months when I have a huge TBR already sitting on my Kindle is quite another.

Ms. Tuffnell's skills lean toward the literary, and while it's not a "Christian" book, it is undeniably inspirational. I felt rejuvenated, much like the characters themselves did by the end.

I won't go into the summary, as it's listed in the blurb and in other reviews. I just wanted to write about how much this novel touched me. Though driven from a point of pain and darkness, the light is very present in this story--so much so that it almost becomes another, periphery, character. It's the yin/yang of despair and enlightenment and it's delivered in a manner that begs the reader to continue.

I cared about these characters, and that matters to me in a read.

I picked up this book on Nook first & I love it!

The incredible story is written in a way anyone can identify with the characters. Ms Tuffnell has a way of making the pages feel like you're talking to a dear friend. You're learning about the lives of the characters as if you are a part of the story. Each shift, each person feels alive within the pages. Each personal triumph a character experiences you find yourself (or at least I found myself) as delighted and proud as the characters themselves.

Few authors create such an easy read that lingers in your mind long after you've put it down. Thank you Ms Tuffnell for sharing such a warm heart and this incredible creation.

Format: Kindle Edition
This book captivated me from the very beginning. I loved the way in which the author used description, not just to set the scene but to introduce the characters as well, and to show their pain. That skilful touch was evident throughout the book, as the six main characters are drawn together by their need.

There is a sense of mystery woven throughout, a feeling of something otherworldly and powerful just out of sight: but this is not a fantasy. These people feel real, their hurt is authentic, and their situations all too recognisable. It's very clear that the author understands and feels their pain. But she also brings compassion and hope to the story, and in the end that was the message I took from this - that there is healing, there is a Wellspring for all of us. One of the most encouraging and uplifting books I've read.
