Julie Jones (Author)
Available

Description

Western tradition has long held that the Chinese are a lucky people, so a Westerner experiencing a run of misfortune is often asked if they have 'run over a Chinaman'. CJ is one of these people. In fact, friends had often asked CJ how many Chinamen she had run over in her last life. Sometimes, she was asked if she had ever been hit by lightning or if she had been on a ladder when a black cat walked underneath it. The comments we facetious but not intended to cause harm. Yet, with the sharpness of ice, they unfailingly connected to that part of CJ's soul that questioned whether she was to blame, or whether she was in some other way responsible for the tragic events that had unfolded in her life. Gain an insider's view of how trauma affects an otherwise sunny mind. Walk - or run - through life with CJ as she bounces from trauma to trauma until the day when she finally works out which way is up.
