Conflicting Emotions

Bonnie Sedgemore

Plagued by illness and haunted by the loss of her children, Olivia is driven by a fierce determination to heal. She suspects her ailments are tied to the heartache of her estrangement and sets out on a quest for wellness. As she grapples with her own health and remorse, she takes up residence in a modest apartment near a hospital, where she meets Jolene, a sometimes friend, sometimes burden, battling her own demons with alcohol.


As Olivia confronts her guilt, she also finds herself entangled in Jolene's turbulent life, compelled to offer aid. Resolute in shedding the weight of her past sorrows and mending broken bridges, Olivia embarks on a poignant journey through the tapestry of her family's history, her marriage, and the myriad ways she has sought love.


With each memory turned over, Olivia seeks answers and redemption. Can uncovering the roots of her estrangement also lead to her recovery, both bodily and of the bonds with her children?
