There are moments in one's life that must be remembered; stories that ache to be heard, clawing their way out of deepest darkness and pain to reach some sort of light. This is one of those stories; the story of the love of my life, whose name you also bear; a story of love, hope, loss, and redemption. Excerpt from Letter to Caroline. Liza was at the crossroads of her life, having just arrived in San Francisco. It was there that she found Genevieve, the love of her life. The years that followed were happy primarily ones, full of adventure and constant companionship until they decided to start a family. Liza and Genevieve set out on a complicated journey to have a child; one that would ultimately consume them.
Liza chronicles the longing, pain, hope, loss, and self-doubt that infertility would unroof for both of them; each in their own unique way. As conveyed to her daughter Caroline, Liza's reflective narrative will inspire even the most pessimistic reader. No matter who you are or who you choose to love, the themes contained in this work are universal: love, longing, futility, hope, forgiveness, and ultimately, inner peace. If you have experienced infertility, miscarriage, the loss of a child, or the loss of your partner as a result of stressful life events, you will find hope, comfort, and inspiration in Liza’s experience.
