Some of us have endured lives so absolutely messed up that we cannot see a way forwards. If we can manage to turn our despair into something we can live with, if we can look ahead and see that there is a brighter day coming, we can rise like a phoenix from the ashes. Maybe not a strong and visibly healthy phoenix, but risen just the same.
"Eloquent Silence" is a collection of stories of women, for women, written by one who has traveled that bumpy road before. Margaret Weise shows us how, when faced with life's dilemmas, the rest of a life can roar in a woman's ears as she seeks to bring balance back into her psyche and her world; how, when beating down life-threatening or soul-destroying circumstances, she is often a force to be reckoned with.
These stories-some sad, some funny-will touch every woman-young, old or in-between-at her very core.
