Voices of the Omnipresent Shadow

By Alysa Lauren Chesler

A car accident while driving to the High Sierras for a romantic weekend left Alysa Lauren Chesler in a month-long come. Chesler faces a life-long struggle from the effects of her traumatic brain injury (TBI), including learning to swallow, speak, and walk. It took her four years to begin again to write poetry and for more years to tell her story of struggle and acceptance. Voices of the Omnipresent Shadow is a deeply touching and heroic story of recovery and redemption.
