Synopsis

Tears of a Phoenix by Helen Noble

A life sentence signifies the end of one road for Jed, a convicted violent criminal, yet the start of a whole new existence. Desperate to escape the shackles of his past , he opens his psyche to the people he meets in the prison system and delves into his psychological and spiritual heritage. To be released into the outside world, Jed embarks on a journey of self-exploration, with the help of a prison psychologist, prison officers and fellow inmates. From a the confines of his cell he relives the past events which led to his current status as a prisoner, and travels into the history and culture of his Ghanian homeland, meeting with his spiritual ancestors to seek the truths he believes will set him free. Jed shares with us his despair following the death of his beloved mother and his elation at the opportunity to place a positive role in the life of his son. We follow alongside him, on his path as a son, a father, a friend , someone finally free to choose the path of his own life.

Reviews
