EXIT: A Novel about passion and compassion (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated Sep 10, 2010 04:39PM
Description: Few events in life stir the soul more dramatically than facing death. In her second book, Exit (published by Trafford Publishing), author Liliana Badd, tells Ondine Duquesne-Schmidt’s story through a new awakening. When the protagonist begins to battle for her life, Ondine, a linguistics professor living a seemingly happy life in Paris, discovers that her soul is more fragile than her leukemia-stricken body when she begins to examine the meaning of her life. Turned upside down, Ondine gestates in an overwhelming and morbid depression, questioning her marriage, her family, her career and her treatment. She begins to contemplate an easier road. After her awakening – aided by the compassionate Dr. Monique Veil – she becomes friends with a prostitute with AIDS and a Russian painter with whom she begins a passionate affair. When an independent newspaper publishes Ondine’s photos of her prostitute friend, her life begins an unexpected spiral in a new direction. Later in life, Ondine returns to Paris, meditating on her life after her illness and how she has affronted death, stirring controversy and passion, understanding that “to live is to change.” Does Ondine have enough time left in life on the edge of non-life? A surprise unexpected twist will leave readers shocked at the end of Ondine’s story.
