Solomon's Pond : A Spiritual Journey in Three Acts Paperback / softback
by Sarah Coyne
Paperback / softback
Solomon's Pond discusses life through the twists and turns of growing older, caring for sick parents and the challenges of an uninspiring career.
Told through the voice of Thalia, a thirty something college teacher, who discovers all is not right within the world, or at least the world she has created, as she wonders where she is truly meant to be and if her 'chosen' career path was really her choice after all.
The book is part of a trilogy which has its origins in Celtic Christianity and features the first of the three main components: Pilgrimage.
The other two books in the series focus on Individuality and Freedom.
The book is set out in a way that readers can dip in and out of it at any time and still follow the story.
It is broken into three main parts: Body, Mind and Soul in which all these correspond to what is happening in Thalia's life, including her career which is going from bad to worse, directed by her spineless boss, Loki.
This includes finding out about a secret double funding enterprise going on in her very department.
Thalia experiences excruciating headaches and ill health which begin to change her views on life and death, especially when she finally discovers what she is suffering from.
