Fairytales aren't supposed to end this way . . . So begins Annabel's adventure into the ultimate mystery: herself. Life has taught her to be strong, to hide her feelings while denying the fragile essence of her femininity. But what happens when she falls in love and leaves everything in London behind to reside in the ancient capital of Vienna? And what happens when, only weeks after she arrives, a tragic death impels her to abandon both her beloved and her dreams? Out of darkness comes light. Delving into Vienna's painful Nazi past, Annabel discovers the startling insights of Austrian psychiatrist Wilhelm Reich. But it is a metaphysical reaction to an eye operation that ultimately propels her on a quest of self-discovery. Her dogmatic search to understand leads her to plumb Vienna's mysterious therapies, spirituality, and finally the little known world of sacred sexuality. This is a fascinating and thought-provoking journey into emotions, the psyche and energy that will radically change how you see yourself and the world. Behind The Extraordinary Ordinary's poetic and transcendent narrative is a powerful message: Only by accepting everything within us - the dark and the light - can we embrace others. And that is when true love begins.
