This story is about life, death, pain and love, and the way they are intertwined to form the unique fabric that is the life of Sibyl.
We join with Sibyl as she traces her life, beginning during the Second World War as a small child, struggling to find her place, in a world of where parents and siblings often seem unreachable.
As she recounts events during her years of school, university and marriage we begin to form a picture of a complex, passionate woman, who turns her frequent struggles with panic into an ebb and flow of fear and love. We share with Sibyl the relief she feels as she begins to witness the causes of her panic leading to acceptance and understanding.
She beckons us to follow her as she embarks on a journey into her love affair with David, a voyage filled with magnificent love, but also deep grief, and we share her pain as she chooses to make one of the biggest sacrifices of her life - the giving of a gift of love, that will haunt her for many years to come. Unseen, we walk with her as she continues her days alone. We share with her in the joy she finds after David's death, the birth of a loving spiritual connection that raises her consciousness, strengthens her love and gives her a new understanding of the splendour of life.

This is a well-written and courageous semi-autobiographical account of one woman's journey towards self-discovery through intimate relationship. The sensitive and insightful reader will identify with many of the beautifully expressed emotions and experiences here. I found it hard to put down until the end.
