Saying Good Bye Is Easy
Readers of this novel-in-short-stories will find a kindred soul in these emotionally authentic stories of repeated loss and disconnection. A young woman says goodbye to her close-knit, traditional Canadian military family in 1960s, and she out to find her place in the world. She must overcome the challenges of isolation, loneliness, victimhood and depression. As she matures and claims her independence, she recognizes patterns of helplessness that trap her in unhappiness. She discovers that rewriting her life brings empowerment and continued growth. The stories we tell ourselves and others shape our lives and what we believe about the world. This fictional narrative is a powerful example of how revisiting and reframing one’s life in imagination can bring meaning to life events and invite forgiveness and hope into a heart.
