Cover of: sing me no more | Lynnette D'anna.

About the Book

Nemah battles her demons of addiction and abuse, stubbornly refusing to become a victim, equally determined to triumph against all odds. Beautifully written, passionate and true, this is a story of human endurance, of the spirit caught in a maze of self-rage but refusing to be extinguished.

About the Edition

Cover Blurb:"This brilliant and evocative novel traces the path of a woman through the confusion of abuse and addiction, to the painful air of sobriety. Nemah breathes with such honesty and dry humor that you'll love her, as I do. Beautifully written, passionate and true prose. What fiction ought to be - moving, even searing, yet elegant in every way." Reviewers say: "Ellipses, metaphor, the detail that speaks but never the whole story--Lynnette D'anna uses the devices of fiction with great skill. Through ritual telling, she marks out the boundaries of a sacred space rarely afforded true confession. While there is not an easy word in sing me no more, it is neither a sad nor even an angry book. It is a painful and loving one. It is necessary fiction." James Hutchinson, Border Crossings. "This is a story of human endurance, of the spirit caught in a maze of external abuse and self-rage, but refusing to be extinguished." Patrick Friesen, Prairie Fire.
