Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Jessica always thought that she was in control of her life, until 2012 when an unplanned pregnancy rocks her world. She becomes lost in a battle between two emotive forces. Both her best friend and her partner, Matthew recommend an elective caesarean in answer to her irrational fear of childbirth, but at the same time a mysterious woman appears and offers to take her on a journey to learn the truth of women’s lost power. The gift of a surgeon’s scalpel promises Jessica a birth with no pain but at what price? Can she risk altogether losing the ever-fading connection with her ancestors? The rainbow is the connection; seven colours, seven journeys and seven truths take Jessica back through her matriarchal lineage to learn the story of modern women’s inheritance. Gradually Jessica begins to understand, through witnessing both the exquisite joy and chilling suffering of her ancestors, the deepest roots of her fears. But can she find people in her world today to join her in her quest for a primal birth and how will this personal growth affect her relationship with Matthew? Would you take the ultimate journey?
