The dark night of the soul can be a wild ride full of promises of redemption and the best cure to save you where the burnt innocence of your love reaches for you on the other side of the broken bridge of dreams, and all words fall in the failure you see yourself as, and one by one all the promises turn to dust right before your eyes in the unfolding of your life as it comes to you to be burnt and to step out of the ashes anew like the phoenix rising to fly, but the weight of your darkness is a pressing need and holds you within its embrace until it has been fully consumed from within.
What made the experience of listening to The Dark Night of the Soul the most enjoyable?
This book isn't traditional prose - it's almost poetic in its structure, and in Linda Roper's completely enveloping narration.
What did you like best about this story?
I loved that it gives people hope in what could be their darkest hours.
What does Linda Roper bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Her lovely and rhythmic delivery is the perfect carrier of this story - this can be really, really heavy stuff - and she's like the wise, kind shaman, holding your hand as you work your way through the book.
