Author Lynnda Pollio's life changes abruptly when she begins hearing the mystical, elderly voice of Addie Mae Aubrey, a Southern, African American woman from the 1930s rural South. Narrated by Addie Mae Aubrey, Trusting the Currents is a story of self-discovery and the uneasy search for one's place in life. 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 natural world, a caring teacher guides Addie Mae with the power of reading. Romantic love enters her life for the first time with Rawley, and we learn how Addie Mae's emerging sense of self compels her to a life-altering decision, even as fear and evil shakes their lives. There are three levels to the unique novel: Addie Mae's powerful story, universal life messages woven throughout the book, and high energetic frequencies embedded her wisdom. Addie Mae reveals how life blossoms when we have the courage to not only accept but also learn from our mistakes and sorrows. Her 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 is a powerful book for anyone going through change and struggle in their lives.
