Sense of Something Lost, A
Learning to face life's challenges by wanting what you get, rather than getting what you want.
Everyone has a story to tell and can feel trapped by it. This inspirational memoir, A Sense of Something Lost is about liberation after years of restlessness and searching. Sue Wells, asks: can a woman who has experienced the trauma of a forced adoption be free to live her life? Do traumas, whatever their nature, shape, define or ruin our lives? Or encourage us to see that our greatest challenges are also keys to the freedom we seek, enabling us to find who we are beyond our personal story?
For anyone trapped by their story, this is a radical way of finding freedom through ancient Eastern mysticism by realising what can never be lost.

A truly amazing journey which will resonate for many mothers and grandmothers struggling to make sense of historical loss and grief. A beautifully written remarkable story. I cried, I smiled, I felt exasperated with myself and ultimately there was a real sense of calm. Engaging and inspired. ~ Susie Essex, former Consultant family therapist NHS
A lifetime journey of the spirit told with warmth and honesty. This is powerful stuff, no doubt about it! ~ Angie Sage, international best selling author
Beautifully written...extremely touching and interesting. ~ Lesley Pearse, international No.1 best selling author with over 10 million copies sold
Beautiful, moving and richly-observed memoir. The voice and the writing style is strong and despite being an intensely personal account, A Sense of Something Lost examines issues that affect us all, and it feels very well-realised. I was deeply moved by Sue Wells' experience, she has the ability to move the reader and the story is deeply upsetting at points. But, she has a lovely, light touch which gives the reader a chance to regroup after dealing with the traumatic events contained in the story. It was a pleasure to read. ~ Alison Taft, author and Creative Writing tutor
