“There was no doubt about it: Melissa Owens was becoming invisible. The only problem was that no one else seemed to notice.”
It’s mid-morning on a workday and Melissa Owens is sitting in a doctor’s waiting room. Her appointment is over, her diagnoses: healthy. Apparently the ache in her chest is all in her head. Unexpectedly, it is the nurse who asks about the trigger. The answer moves the ache from Melissa’s chest to her throat.
A few hours, a business card and a leap of faith later, Melissa finds herself on the path to find more in her life.
Unfurl is a story about wanting more. It is about magic and food and baggage and connection. It is about looking at yourself and the stories that hold you back. But mostly Unfurl is about what happens when the more you have been searching for comes looking for you.
Best described by one reader as Eat, Pray, Love meets The Alchemist, Unfurl was initially written in response to Sue Monk Kidd’s comment about women being the largest untapped resource on the planet. Fed stories of unworthiness and fear, shame and guilt, many women believe that they are powerless. This book is my attempt to give contemporary women a new story to believe in.
At the moment I am still researching and seeking publishing options. In the meantime, I am going to be sharing the next chapter very soon. Please join my mailing list to be kept up-to-date with when you can hear more of Unfurl.
