Year of the Comets : A Journey from Sadness to the Stars Paperback / softback


On the clearest nights in the darkest places you can see as many as two thousand stars.

On what scaffolding are they hung? Jan DeBlieu began to wonder. Her husband had become enveloped in a depression of his own, and both he and DeBlieu were struggling to find points of light out of that darkness.

DeBlieu discovers it in the sky above, a firmament of order and beauty that prompts her to consider the worlds inside our minds, the delicate framework of neurons and synapses that support our fragile selves.

Year of the Comets is her record of the journey she and her husband take from pain to healing.
