Haunted by her past, Gabrielle Bergan embarks on an inner quest to find her real self. What she discovers is beyond her wildest dreams.
In this gripping memoir, Gabrielle traces her life from a difficult childhood in Australia to marriage and a new life in Norway.
On the other side of the world, far from home, she appears to have it all: a husband, children, nice house, friends, a good job. But deep down, she’s unhappy. She longs to find her real self, the self she knows is there, but cannot reach. No matter how hard she tries, she can’t find the door she’s looking for.
With the breakdown of her marriage, the door opens at last, and the inner journey begins. Gabrielle starts her descent, moving downwards through darkness and pain until finally, she reaches her destination. A place so beautiful, she wishes she could stay there forever.
