So, What's This all about?
Here's what Susan Joyce has To say...
"The Lullaby Illusion--A Journey of Awakening" is the first book in my travel journey series. A travelogue of the politics of Europe, the United States, and Israel during a twelve year 'roller-coaster' period of my life where I discover that my husband leads a secret life. It's an adventure of survival through friends and sheer determination. It took several years to write because I didn't feel free to publish the sensitive political information until after my ex-husband died. Won the Readers' Favorite 2014 GOLD Medal Winner, Non-Fiction--Travel. It was also a 2014 Stargazer Literary Prizes Honorable Mention Prize Winner.
From The Back of The Book
One woman’s story: a child lost at birth, war, betrayal, travel, dreams, and art
In a hospital in a foreign land, a young American woman gives birth. Her son, one hope of saving her troubled marriage to a mysterious man, is born dead. Soon after, while she still grieves, Susan's island paradise in Cyprus collapses into a war zone, and she finds herself trapped in fierce fighting between defending Greek and Turkish forces. Evacuated by the British Navy, she starts putting pieces back together in England. Then she learns that her husband had something to do with the war. And in lucid dreams, she sees that he is also cheating on her. She confronts him, and he responds with a too-professional chokehold that threatens her life. Stunned, she finds herself penniless in the streets of Brussels. But friends, dreams, and creativity push her forward as she discovers that her "ticking clock" is not the need to produce a child, but her need to create a life that reflects her true expressive self.
This twelve-year memoir of profound personal transformation and friendships is a true page-turner. Again and again, you will ask yourself "what could possibly happen next?"
