Jilly McKinksy is a beautiful young woman living a life of quiet desperation. As much as she tries to assume the role that society has cast upon her, there is a stirring inside her soul that will not let go of her.
Her life is seemingly wonderful-she lives on the gorgeous coast of Australia with all the so-called luxuries that life has to offer, but finds herself plagued by self-doubt, guilt and sadness. As she withdraws further and further into her own misery, inner spirits begin to emerge-Joy-a part of Jilly's inner wisdom-the eternal and loving part of herself. Then there's Madame-an ancient spirit that dares Jilly to live her life with no regrets.
As Jilly finds the courage to embark on a journey of self-discovery, she realizes a new sense of self, a reason for living and the resolve to put away societal rules and live a life filled with beauty and purpose.
Jilly becomes truly free and experiences the ultimate and sensual joy of just being and the absolute treasure of being a woman.
Reminiscent of Daphne Du Maurier's Mrs. B in the recently discovered narration of His Letters Grew Colder, Natasha Gilmour's lovely heroine has a similar innocent yet smouldering sensuality that transcends time. Being, Joy is a stunning and provocative debut novel that will resonate with women everywhere and appeal to those who enjoy unconventional, thought-provoking prose.
Natasha Gilmour writes in a variety of forms. Ms. Gilmour is currently writing her second novel and lives on the east coast of Australia.
