“I believe every person is given a life with varying degrees of pain or trauma. That darkness can either be embraced or rejected, and this is what I know to be true: The choice to embrace and learn from your pain is the harder choice, but it is also where the wisdom of life takes hold.” — Melissa Hull
Vulnerability, trauma, and pain can unravel a person at their core, and they often succeed. But accepting a new perspective of your life, in the face of its undoing, is one of the most powerful ways to find a purpose and passion that’s powerful enough to change the world.
And that’s exactly what Melissa Hull has done.
As Lessons from Neverland opens, a warm Southwestern breeze suggests we’re in for a peaceful ride. Yet each sentence takes us closer and closer to the tragedy that will upend it all for our loving heroine. And once it does, an unimaginable pain quickly threatens to consume her whole.
In the pages that follow, we watch as one remarkable woman pulls herself out of the darkness and into the light — only to be cut down by life’s circumstances once again.
This gripping memoir introduces us to a mother who has had to endure the most destructive form of loss imaginable. Just when we begin to believe she has made it safely to the other side, we’re drawn into a mystery that culminates in another type of tragedy altogether.
Melissa Hull stuns, captivates and inspires readers with her debut book, Lessons From Neverland, a compelling must-read for every mother, child, and friend.
