Caroline Hemingwayabout this book: Truth is relative.
It is seen from the perspective of one's experience and beliefs. One momentous event can change all that. For the Hamilton family it meant losing everything in one fire – a fire that would destroy their family and set them on a new course to find freedom. The Awakening is a novel where tragedy confronts their belief system and new truth awakens them to new possibilities. They need to find the courage to follow their hearts to create a new destiny.
I wrote this novel after personally experiencing trauma in my own life – the story interweaves some of the emotions and experiences I went through with fantasy and fiction. Since it was initially a therapeutic exercise I had no intention of publishing, it took me six years to write before I decided to take a leap of faith and publish it. Since then I have written two more books in the series with the fourth currently being written.
I chose the title and cover illustration to speak about new beginnings, hope when everything seems bleak. My book is aimed at young adults although people on either side of that age group have enjoyed it too. I hope my readers discover the key thoughts woven throughout the book - that everything is possible if you believe it and that there is always faith to see, hope to dream and love to be.
