Hurricane SeasonHurricane Season: Living Through a Broken Heart

by Jeanette Stokes (Words & Spirit, 2008) $20.00 (includes tax & shipping)

Life is designed to break your heart. It just is. What you do with your broken heart is up to you. At least that’s what Jeanette Stokes came to believe after the breakup of her marriage.

Hurricane Season bears witness to a woman courageous and spiritually alive enough to sit with her own mirrors...a naked soul sitting in the eye of a storm.” —Jaki Shelton Green, poet

“Like Joan Didion’s The Year of Magical Thinking, Hurricane Season is a dark journey to the edge of despair. However, in Stokes’ case, her husband does not die suddenly. Instead, he moves across the country and keeps calling and e-mailing his simultaneous rejection and affection. In crisp prose, Stokes chronicles the roller-coaster year of separation with bald honesty, fully owning the downfall of her marriage and its roots in her family of origin.” —Georgann Eubanks, author of Literary Trails of the North Carolina Mountains

Jeanette Stokes is founder and Executive Director of the Resource Center for Women and Ministry in the South and lives in Durham, NC.
