"In Borderline, Elizabeth offers us a memoire rich in honesty, humor, and dignity. It is my hope that others will follow her lead, and allow their stories to unfold with as much beauty and clarity.
Grief is hard. It is especially hard when we are born into it, marking the soul with a fractured, absent scintilla…pain which ebbs and flows and pervades, never absent, rarely fully present, but a shadowy chimera which often marks the soul for life.
Healing is possible, but it takes compassion, creativity, and hard work. Elizabeth has a way of weaving past, present, and future into a tapestry which gently reminds us of the beauty of the eternal now, and through which we see that there are powerful forces which can guide us to the place which transcends death, if we have the courage and faith for the journey.
I hope you will allow her story to touch you as deeply as it touched me, and let the swans to guide you home."
