Gabriella Maria Moncrief is blessed. She survived childhood abuse and years on the streets before finding her way to the Sacred Women's Circle and good friends who sustain her now. But she still suffers nightmares she's certain have roots in the abuse. When she meets Giovanni, the gentle Italian reaches out, but Gabby is unable to reach back.
Giovanni's invitation to his villa in Italy includes her circle sister, Sophia, who grieves the loss of a longtime friend. There Gabby begins her own healing process. But as she crafts the story of a young homeless girl, a composite of herself and other homeless teens she's known, Gabby slowly begins to feel different about herself, and her place in the world.
And about Giovanni's place in her world. But when Gabby is offered a chance to remain in Italy and write, will she have the courage to make this leap of faith? With her circle sisters' support, how much more can she grow?
About the Author
Judith, in her real life, has been a part of sacred women’s circles for over twenty years and knows first-hand how important spirituality is when dealing with life’s challenges.
Her imagination has always been active and through books she’s been a princess rescued from the tower by the handsome knight, a missionary in India, explorer in the Amazon jungle, a priestess of the Goddess, and a nun to name a few. She’s lived with people from all walks of life including different tribes of indigenous people on five continents in tents, wood cabins, igloos, castles, mansions, high-rise apartments, penthouses, dungeons, basements, and cottages.
Then one day in Judith’s real life, the stories that make up The Sacred Women’s Circle series flooded through her in daydreams, lucid dreams, and conversations so real at times she wondered about her sanity. It was a compelling experience! An experience that was a catalyst to starting her journey to tell these stories and see them published.
Judith’s prayer for you:
Each and every day of your life may you find joy, may you see beauty, may you experience wonder, and may you know you are unconditionally loved.
