One Hundred Daffodils; Finding Beauty, Grace, and Meaning When Things Fall Apart
An engaging, wise, and uplifting reflection on human resilience and nature’s ability to teach, inspire, and heal, One Hundred Daffodils is told through the lens of the author’s personal experiences with grief and heartbreak on her journey toward self-discovery and empowerment. Confronted at midlife with a major life upheaval, the author sensed she could not reinvent herself from the same consciousness she currently inhabited. From this place of surrender and one core question, “How can we ever know another person, if we do not truly know ourselves”, she turned to a dedicated study of Jungian Psychology, a deep dive into global spiritual practices, and communion with the divine in nature.
Written with uncommon honesty, One Hundred Daffodils is a book whose words, like those of a trusted friend, are often raw, frequently funny, reliably uplifting, sometimes painfully familiar, and always vulnerable, honest and wise. Like Hermann Hesse, Walt Whitman, and Mary Oliver before her, the author uses nature as a metaphor, sanctuary, and sage teacher. It is a contemporary yet timeless story of a woman’s transformation through her search for meaning, identity, and purpose.
