Child of the Moon, Paperback / softback Book

Child of the Moon Paperback / softback


An illustrated collection of poetry about one woman's resilience in the face of trauma and mental illness. After a suicide attempt derailed the seemingly perfect life of Bay-area writer and entrepreneur Jessica Semaan, she checked herself into a mental hospital in her home country of Lebanon.

There, she turned to poetry and creative writing to make sense of the trauma from war and domestic violence that had engulfed her childhood.

The result is this powerful collection reflecting on darkness, shame, despair, and the unconditional self-love that leads to healing.
