Fear can be a debilitating emotion. It can be all-consuming, pervading every thought, every breath in and out of your body. It may be obvious, felt as a result of an imminent threat. What not everyone knows, though, is that it also may be felt on a less intense scale, every day of someone’s life, during nearly every moment.
Leslie Volker is one of these people.
Fear became a way of life for Leslie. From a young age, one emotion seemed to override every experience in life. Seemingly normal childhood occurrences represented much more to Leslie, and this trend plagued her through her adult years.
Undercurrent: A Memoir of Fear recounts the roadblocks we sometimes build for ourselves in life. Whether you have a loved one who suffers from an addiction or you have anxieties of your own, author Leslie Volker’s autobiography will shed some insight into ways to cope with your own roadblocks.
