Trusting the Currents by Lynnda Pollio



Today we have a guest blog by Lynnda Pollio, Author of Trusting the Currents

Lynnda Pollio never expected to be a writer.

That changed when she began hearing the voice of Addie Mae Aubrey, a Southern, African American woman. Her first words, It’s not what happened to me that matters, began a spirited remembering of Addie Mae’s teenage years in the late 1930s rural south and the hard learned wisdom she asked Lynnda to share.

Beginning at age eleven with the arrival of beautiful, mysterious cousin Jenny and her shadowy stepfather, Uncle Joe, Trusting the Currents explores Addie Mae’s reluctant awakening. As Jenny introduces Addie Mae to the world beyond what can be seen, romantic love enters her life for the first time with Rawley. Unfathomable loss and rising trust in the “Invisibles” leads Addie Mae on a tumultuous journey to a life-altering decision.

Trusting the Currents is a story of self-discovery—of faith, courage, family, and the uneasy search for one’s place in life. It 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. Addie Mae’s story may belong to one woman, but the lessons it teaches belong to everyone willing to open their hearts and listen to the truth within their souls.

Trusting the Currents won the 2014 Nautilus Book Awards gold award in Fiction. The Nautilus Book Awards honors books of high literary merit that promote spiritual growth, conscious living and positive social change. Previous Nautilus Book Award recipients include Barbara Kingsolver, The Dalai Lama, Deepak Chopra, Eckhart Tolle, and Marianne Williamson.
