“Real love gives us permission to challenge our thoughts”
I was totally drawn into this story, strangely captivated by it, as many parallels to my reality rang true. It gifted me an appreciation for a loved one … grace upon grace. ‘the struggle is real.’
Translucent War is very interesting to read and I found it hard to put the book down. I also feel it would be helpful to other people who have trouble with voices; knowing that they are not alone.
The author took me on an emotional journey with ‘the Woman’. I could feel the trauma of the Woman’s life unfold as I turned the pages and travelled with her to freedom. I highly recommend this book.
I picked up Translucent War not knowing the journey I would be taken on. One that was familiar, real and raw at times. A powerful account of the battles of addiction with many facets of love shining through the deepest and darkest. An inspiring journey of opening your heart to people that are around you, being brave enough to share your deepest thoughts and taking the risk to reveal your true self.
