When an illness ravages her body and exhumes her disturbing past, can her tattered psyche ever recover?“I am caught.

I’ve somehow fallen into a crack—Between.MoreWhen an illness ravages her body and exhumes her disturbing past, can her tattered psyche ever recover?“I am caught. Somehow, I am caught between these worlds, I can’t get back to Life, I can’t get to Death. I’ve somehow fallen into a crack—Between. And this time, I cannot find the way out. If there is a portal that leads back to Life, I don’t know where it is.”Enter the life of Ara Lucia Ashburne, a tortured coma patient largely separated from the world of the living, and caught in a hyperreal dream world of pure suffering. Hovering betwixt life and death, Ara drifts from a nightmarish realm where she is tormented by hideous creatures, and the world of the living, where she is fleetingly aware of events that transpire around her. This true story takes readers on a turbulent journey from profound love and high hopes, to darkness and despair, and back out the other side to healing redemption. Disturbing, haunting and eternally memorable, Ara Lucia Ashburne’s Reconstruction is a gripping must-read debut that reveals the beauty and resilience of the human spirit.
