About the Book

Sufi poet Ghalib said, “Held back, unvoiced, grief bruises the heart.” This is the story of a heart bruised for many years and the hurt around that. After her father dies of liver cancer, the author finally awakens and steps into a spiritual (and sober) life, including healing - from grief, from despair, from decades of inauthentic living. This hopeful story illustrates what is possible when grief is honored and transcended.

“With admirable honesty, O’Neil recounts her journey from family dysfunction and alcoholism to a life of spiritual exploration and understanding.”
—Susan Richards, NY Times bestselling author

“Her honesty is compelling, and her journey offers many lessons. I could not stop reading this book.”
—Sally Helgesen, author, The Female Advantage, The Female Vision

“This book is courageous, human, insightful, and truly inspiring…It will help many readers immensely.”
—Kimberly Hughes, Sacred Self Living
