Jude Bennett’s “happily ever after” has dissolved into a crisis that catapults her into the limelight of the Chicago art scene with a passion to help other struggling female artists. Even though her childhood dreams of being a wife, a mother, and an artist have been realized, Jude instinctively knows something is missing. So when her mother suddenly dies, she sets out on a quest to find herself.
As her search for meaning in an unpredictable world takes her from rural Illinois into the international art world, from Christian traditions to a universal spirituality that encompasses even her Native American heritage, and from the belief that she needs a man to be whole, Jude must learn to embrace her vulnerability, the joy of self-discovery, and most importantly, her purpose.
Woman Alone is the story of a creative woman’s murky yet magical search for meaning as she questions her life, her immortality, and where she truly belongs.
