Abstract Love is a voice from the whirlwind of a profoundly abused person's mind as she toils toward wholeness and redress. "Your genocidal practice to kill me as an Indian did not work," she tells the government's lawyer, "but it did wear me down. It almost killed me." Myrtle refuses to let the pain have the last word in her life. She fights against history to find hope and gradually succeeds.
Readers will find it worth persisting through the uneven writing and painful subject matter for this glimpse inside the issues plaguing First Nations communities, and for the message of hope and resilience. (From Amazon Digital Services)
