"In her heart-wrenching novelized memoir, [...] the blending of the two voices makes for a powerful, moving and suspenseful novel."
MIAMI, FL. – July 15th, 2011 - In her debut novel, While I Was Learning to Become God, published by Tapuat Publishing, Author Roxana Jones shows us how a woman can transform herself thanks to her own resilience and convictions.
In her novel, Roxana Jones outlines a story told by her dying friend, Sybil Vaughan. It begins in the Caribbean island where Sybil grows and imagines a perfect world filled with fantasy and magic; this peaceful setting soon fades away to be replaced by social and religious strictures. Trapped in a gilded cage as she becomes a woman, dramatic events force a spiritual transformation as she starts to experience a whole new life as a result of her efforts to change her thoughts and heal her heart.
Set in contemporary America, the story shows how a meaningless life dedicated to the ephemeral and mundane, can be transformed into a marvelous experience of love; that is, self-love. Lying on her death bed, Sybil relates her long struggle to overcome alienation, false values and reconcile herself to the most difficult decision throughout her life; at age 33, she leaves everything behind to rediscover her true, inner self.
Written in a fresh, original style, the incredible and otherworldly accounts can inspire readers to find new opportunities for personal growth and healing. While I Was Learning to Become God is a revelatory drop in the ocean of change; it offers new meaning and hope for humanity’s empowerment and success.
