A Woman’s Glorious Discovery of Her Self, Her Worth and Her Life Natasha Gilmour writes a moving and stunning tale of a woman discovering who she is and what her life purpose truly is in Being, Joy.
Jilly McKinksy is a beautiful and sensuous woman living a life of quiet desperation.
Jilly’s life, on the outside, is the envy of many women. She lives on the gorgeous
coast of Australia and has all the trappings and luxuries of wealth, but finds herself constantly plagued by self-doubt, guilt and sadness. Although she thinks she should be happy, there is something missing – and a stirring inside her soul that will not let go of her.
Jilly withdraws further and further into her own misery. When she reaches what she believes is the bottom of darkness, the place where her soul has simply given up, inner spirits begin to emerge.
Joy, a part of Jilly’s inner wisdom -- the eternal and loving part of herself -- prompts her to try again. Then there’s Madame, an ancient spirit that dares her to live a life -- her life -- with no apologies and no regrets.
As Jilly finds the courage to befriend these once-hidden facets of herself, she begins a wondrous journey of self-discovery. She finds a new sense of self, a reason for living and unearths a solid and strong resolve to put away societal rules and pursue a life filled with beauty and purpose. Jilly’s path leads her full circle: back to herself. She becomes truly free to experience the ultimate and sensual joy of being and the absolute treasure of being a woman.
Reminiscent of Daphne Du Maurier’s Mrs. B in the recently discovered narration of His Letters Grew Colder, Natasha Gilmour’s lovely heroine has a similar innocent yet smouldering sensuality that transcends time. Being, Joy is a stunning and provocative debut novel that will resonate with women everywhere and appeal to those who enjoy unconventional, thought-provoking prose.
