Following the Whispers – Creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance from the depths of despair
In her poignant memoir, Karen Helene Walker traces the effects of a cold, loveless home environment and an early sexual molestation on her growth, marriage, motherhood, and career. After freeing herself from a desert of a marriage, Walker loses custody of her child and then journeys to discover who she is and to find some sense of wholeness.
That journey takes her from her old life to new friendships, new lovers, and new professions. From New York to Portland, Oregon and eventually to Albuquerque, New Mexico, Walker seeks someone to love her as she is. She finds that and more - a loving connection with her son. This fifty-year emotional odyssey ultimately leads Walker to a self who can look back over her life with a contentment and satisfaction that allow her to follow the whispers that the future may bring.
