Overview

Every day, the stories of our lives are being shaped by millions of small moments—the little details, the sparks in between, the tiny fragments that, when they are ready, begin to connect and to change who we are and how we see the world and our place in it. Genevieve Georget, with her raw truth, walks us through the tiny details of the year in her life that cracked her open, pierced through the curated walls that were built around her, and, in so doing, brought her to a place of surrender and a true understanding of hope. Her stories and experiences are a picture of the beautiful truth that, in your struggle, in your pain, in your triumph and joys, you are not alone.

This book opens the door, calls to you, and allows you to follow the journey of the year that tried to break her; to explore the words that never failed her; to experience images that capture her; and to see how her experiences—the painful, the inspiring, the confusing, the enchanting—gently changed her.

Solace: A Journal of Human Experience is about how comfort, consolation, and community can heal broken hearts, mend deep wounds, and restore hearts toward love.

It’s a book that invites you into the exquisite dance of it all.
