Holly lives a simple life in America when a Facebook message from across the seas and decades brings her past hurtling back, a past of trauma, abuse and terrible sadness. As she slowly excavates her life, as Holly, as Jo, as Maggie, we explore the courage and desperation it takes to reinvent a life once, twice, thrice. A book of great empathy, heartbreak and devastating beauty, Jennifer Down's Bodies of Light asks how much trauma a person can bear, and how one can find a way to live with it.
