Angel Bones in Unexpected Places
In a recent interview with Time magazine, J K Rowling described story as “making meaning out of chaos.” Angel Bones is story—my story—about finding meaning in chaos. It’s more about “being found” than finding. It’s about how Sara (my moniker for Spirit) found me and infused my personal chaos with meaning. Angel Bones is also about how forgiveness saved my life and rehabilitated my self esteem.

In sum: three themes co-mingle in this personal narrative: Spirit, forgiveness, and self-esteem.
