When Tracks Fade Book Cover
When Tracks Fade
  • ASIN: B077DXHQCB

This novel is the first of the "Pitayta Gully Trilogy."

"When Tracks Fade" chronicles two distinct periods in the life of a newly-wed, Jamaican, doctor who has moved to Germany to live with her husband. When the harsh realities of racism and sexism threaten to derail her career goals and drive her to the brink of insanity, Millicent escapes through flashbacks to her youth on the island. Through one of her flashbacks, the middle-aged doctor meets with her younger self and relives the traumas, fears and unresolved issues of her childhood. Through this encounter she is also able to reconnect with and reclaim the source of her inspirations.


Millicent's account is typical of the girls growing up in her neck of the Jamaican countryside. Gender inequality and poverty plague the poor, farming, families. Millicent remembers the domestic violence and the constant anger. She relives the sexual assualt and the abortion. She recalls her own emotional abandonment and depression and she recounts the gang activities and the murder. They are her memories, but they are not her story alone. These things didn't happen in her home alone, they happened in many homes in her village. They were what the women and girls dealt with everyday and yet they still swung their hips and held their heads high when they walked.

 

Millicent struggles to understand how this could be. How could she continue living after all her misfortunes? She resorts to self hurt and isolation and suicidal thoughts torment her. She pushes past the darkness and musters the strength to help those who are wounded. In her acts of kindness, Millicent finds her calling and the strength to move forward with her life. She realizes that she is an offspring of the cool mountains, a daughter of cedar trees and progeny of the ever flowing rivers. Her roots run deep and if she survived back then, she can survive now.

Woman Wise Up Rise Up
 
  • ASIN : B0BF2WXDDZ

God's people perish for lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6). But knowing and committing to God's word about you, your family, your health, your career, and your relationships sets the stage for your success (Proverbs 16:3). 

Although we know that God is the Only Wise God, many times, we stumble about in the dark, following ill advice or leaning on our own understanding instead of pressing into God's presence and gaining His knowledge and His strength. As women who are leaders in our homes, schools, churches and workplaces, we can't afford to perish and take others down with us simply because we lack knowledge about where and what God is calling us to. We can't afford to lose out on who He is calling us to be at such a time as this. As women, our identity in Him is everything! 

Woman Wise Up, Rise Up helps you to prioritize your relationship with God, develop a deeper level of intimacy and rise in His wisdom and grace. 31 days of:

  • Scriptural Meditations

  • Devotional Teachings

  • Focused Prayers

  • Journal Prompts
