Chara is definitely a place you want to discover!"While reading this allegory on Spirit and science I immediately thought of homes where conflict is high and joy is low, where communication is failing but a story would be heard. Complex truth is easily absorbed in a captivating story even by those who are not always ready to listen. Deni has used her experience with these low joy places to write a story that crosses bridges and builds bridges where there were none. On top of that, this is great reading for high joy people as well. Instead of being dragged through the deep waters we soar in hope and understanding of how the brain and spirit work inside and in relationships."~Dr. James Wilder PhD Author and creator of The Life Model, former clinical psychologist with over 30 years of experience.
