Synopsis of the Book

When Deborah was eight years old her father was diagnosed with Huntington’s disease, a hereditary and degenerative disorder, for which there is no cure. With no test available, Deborah grew up under a cloud of uncertainty that affected her life and the decisions that she made, in a profound way.

After many years of struggling with her sadness, two of Deborah’s brothers were tested positive for the disease. Her brother Nigel decided that he didn’t want to live with the condition but did not want to die alone.

When she left for her holiday to Costa Rica, Deborah had no idea that a little baby hummingbird would turn her life around so unexpectedly and so profoundly. The death of the little bird brought forth the sadness of her life, which came pouring out of her like an erupting volcano. Meeting her guru and learning about a better way to cope, Deborah finally started to see the black cloud shift and the rainbow appear.

As she embarked on a journey to heal her emotional wounds and find new purpose in her life, Deborah’s mother was charged with aiding and abetting her brother’s suicide.

Deborah left her stressful job and took herself off to India, where she explored many of the emotions that surfaced and came closer to finding out who she really was.

Changing her life completely, she became a holistic therapist, using her experience to help others with their challenges.

The author invites you to share her emotional healing journey, taking you to Costa Rica, India, China, Mount Kilimanjaro and to London’s Central Criminal Court, The Old Bailey.
