Negotiating Shadows

Alcohol/drug addiction is a worldwide problem. But it is also a personal problem. Grace Growing Medicine E.R. knows: it was her problem.

Negotiating Shadows traces her life from her birth into poverty and an abusive childhood into her womanhood as an addict. We accompany her on her dark journey as she negotiates the conflicts of life towards a spiritual awakening.

On her way to the Sun she found Alcoholics Anonymous and the Bahá’í Faith. This is all set against the historical and social highlights of the period.
