Permission to Live
, is a novel which tells the story of one man's path to "filling the vacancy", which remains for so many of us who've achieved a level of material or professional success and cultural or religious conformity, yet still feel a hole. A very full life which is very unfulfilling
It opens with a recurring epiphany that, perhaps, you too, have felt
: A realization that achievement is not gratifying to the whole person. Further, the main character is battling a one of life’s most difficult decisions: “It was something that I knew to be wrong, yet my heart couldn’t be more certain that it was right.”
Readers are engaged, connecting with the emotion-stirring, life-like situations and characters, and will be inspired and empowered as the story unfolds. Experiences with a “witch,” challenges with family, career and community, as well as learning opportunities with counselors, coaches and people from every day life contribute to the life-lessons of the story.
