Fiction - Novels
Carla Jensen is big-hearted, bright, beautiful - and bipolar. A rebel by nature and a feisty champion of the downtrodden, she battles to resist the relentless pull of the murky watersof her illness, while remaining sceptical of her diagnosis and suspicious of medication. Adrift and exhausted by her mood swings, Carla witnesses a random act of violence on a city street and the ensuing confrontation impels her to challenge man's inhumanity to society's outcasts and ultimately to embark on a personal quest for healing and redemption. Along the way Carla finds inspiration in unexpected places and laughter and joy in the underbelly of a city where most would see only pain.
