What happens to a woman when the room that was once the guest room of her home becomes the space of self-imposed exile? What does she tell her children? What does she tell herself? How does she survive her marriage coming to an end without becoming bitter, hard, or cold? What if her time in that space was actually the key to her spiritual destiny? This inspiring memoir attempts to answer these questions and shares a riveting story of how one woman navigated the journey from one of life's darkest moments through the gateway to joy and to a new understanding of the calling on her life.
