Look for the silver lining

£6.99

Product description

Look for the Silver Lining is an intimate and evocative autobiography tracing the growth of its protagonist from a difficult childhood into adulthood. It is a book of landscapes, both internal and external, and of how nature can preserve us in the face of the increasing contingencies of modern life. The whole horizon of human emotion is present in abundance as the author unburdens the weight of his life. We follow him through dark times and the struggle for meaning, touched by his losses and cheered by his triumphs. It is, as the author states, "not a story of physical pain, but emotional pain; injuries that no one can see, but a very severe handicap, with a very long healing process." Look for the Silver Lining is a book born of need and survival, and the need to express the triumph of survival. It is strongly recommended for anyone who has known the voice of doubt and bravely persevered. It is a book of changes and a human rendering of how they may be embraced, and is a heartfelt and heart-warming read.
