A young mother battles postpartum depression, marital troubles and addiction. Her weary mind plagued with horrible thoughts not her own, she decides to end it all. Suddenly, her mind and heart begin to race, her vision blurs and goes black. She awakes in a strange, dull, monochromatic blue world.
Here, she comes face-to-face with the most beautiful and ugliest moments of her life, choosing those that she will lose forever, and those that are too precious to let go.
In a world where many choose a living death, and no one is above suspicion, will her handsome Guide help her fight her way back to the beautiful life she left behind, or will she succumb to her ugliest urges and let her sweetest memories disappear into the blue?
Attempting to Define is a series of four books of poetry. Attempting to Define: Love is the first of the series. This small poetry collection looks at the light and dark sides of romantic love. The poetry is unassuming in form, introspective, playful, sometimes heartbreaking and often sardonic, but always honest. The love we experience is, after all, tainted by our own faults.
Attempting to Define: Motherhood is the third book in a series of four books. The first two books, Attempting to Define: Love and Attempting to Define: Mourning were released January 2014. This specific collection tackles the idea of motherhood and all the sagging, nagging woes and uplifting, soaring joys that come with it.
