This dramatic, fast-paced memoir traces a woman's search for a story to explain sudden losses she experienced as a young child, including her sister's cancer death, her father's disappearance, and her overnight move away from home, events that fractured her relationship with her mother and thrust her into a life-long pattern of abandonment and loss. Juggling professional success with unresolved grief, she follows a career path as a writer, journalist, professor, and spiritual director, traveling from West Texas to the plains of Spain, the forests of Pennsylvania, and the Alps in southern France trying to find a mysterious tale carried for generations in her family. Resisting the pull to either condemn or quickly forgive those who hurt her and avoiding the temptation to fall into the trap of spiritual bypassing, she chooses, instead, to follow the story's call across thresholds of time and space, where she discovers a family legacy that illuminates the lives of all the women in her family. A universal story that speaks into the often-troubled relationship between mothers and daughters. Blending ancestral storytelling with spirituality and mystery, this is a memoir that will inspire the reader to believe in the power of story to transform the storyteller into a story carrier, where the magic of healing can begin.
