After the darkness, the light always comes.

A TRUE STORY. For Annie North, the light came from strangers in the shadows, one text at a time. When her marriage ended, Annie found herself alone, save for three small children and a cellphone. After a trial of therapy and antidepressants, she moved on to her own brand of psychoanalysis: making up stories and presenting them to men she met through texting. By inventing new characters within herself, she became a powerful muse for her men and in return, their love for her was the strength she needed to become the woman she had been looking for. In a world of byte-sized social media, instant-gratification, one-click dating apps, Annie’s sometimes shocking memoir takes us on a journey of love, adventure, possibility, and opportunity as she uncovers the men behind the texts, and in so doing, she reveals herself. This is a unique and honest account of the lies that needed to be told in order to bring the truth forward,

“In ways I wouldn’t have imagined, Annie’s story offers nourishment to any woman struggling with the overwhelming demands of modern life. With humor and honesty, Textual Healing shows that love is all around us, whether we’re looking for it or not.”Marci Shimoff, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author, Happy for No Reason, Love For No Reason, Chicken Soup for the Woman’s Soul

About the Author

Annie North was a post-partum, newly-separated, middle-class hockey mom who spent a year in search of her inner goddess and spiritual redemption - collecting boyfriends through texts, an adventurous spirit, and a pack of lies. She was like a therapist who slept with her patients, allowing them to find a bit of their own truth, too.
