This book is dedicated to my parents. I wrote this one during one of the hardest seasons in my life. So many of us face many different things that splinter us into millions of sharp tiny pieces. We close our eyes in an attempt to shut out the pain pressing down upon us. Unfortunately, shutting our eyes and closing ourselves off from the world (or our pain) doesn’t do anything, but make the inevitable reality harsher.
I closed my eyes for almost a year, and writing Melodee: A Song for Nora was extremely difficult. Proofing it was even harder. I don’t seem to be able to read it to the end without crying.
This book touches me at one of my most broken places, my heart. Writing this book was part of my healing, and if there is anyone out there who needs the same healing, I hope that you take some comfort in the words of this story.
Melodee was written not only for me, but for you.
