Author Angela Williams Gorrell's expressive narration brings to life two soul-searching years she experienced. Gorrell was researching joy at Yale and was scheduled to teach a course titled The Life Worth Living when three close family members died tragically (to suicide, cardiac arrest, and opioid use). Swamped by grief, she struggled to profess life's goodness when she felt none of it. Gorrell's narration, at times suggestive of tears, makes her journey from grief to joy intensely personal. Volunteering to lead a women's prison Bible study marked a turning point in her sorrow. The raw need and redemption Gorrell experienced in that tight circle fueled her to rediscover and reexamine joy. Her voice embodies resilience as she delivers hard-won epiphanies about the gift of joy to the gratified listener. E.S.B. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2021]
