Some moments change everything you become.
The life of author Lynnda Pollio, a busy New Yorker, abruptly changes when she unexpectedly hears the mystical, elderly voice of Addie Mae Aubrey, a Southern, African American woman. Her first words, “It’s not what happened to me that matters,” begin a spirited remembering of Addie Mae’s turbulent teenage years in the late 1930s South—and learned wisdom she asks Lynnda to share.
Together, these two women from different times and places embark on an uncommon journey through deep waters of love, faith, and courage. The sudden arrival of beautiful, mysterious cousin Jenny and her shadowy stepfather, Uncle Joe, a promise made to a caring teacher, unfathomable loss, and rising trust in the "Invisibles" not only transform Addie Mae's budding life, but leads to the author's own spiritual awakening.
Trusting the Currents represents a new literary genre of conscious storytelling, engaging high spiritual frequencies that resonate with the reader's heart, guiding them deep into their own truth and transformation.
