The Love Goes On...

This book is a truly original take on life, self-discovery and love written with honesty and vulnerability. A Reflection of Love ~ A Different Kind of Love Story is a creative, insightful and inspirational read that will make you think and question everything. Learn about the part you play in your own story through each chapter's reflection questions as Frances encourages and invites you to examine your own ideas of love and how that affects your life today.

But most of all, this is a story about hope in the hopeless place of poverty, addiction and isolation and the life that is possible with faith in a power greater than yourself.

It is a story that has the capacity to change lives. It is an experience that has already changed one.

Praise For "A Reflection of Love: A Different Kind of Love Story"

by Frances Stone

 
A Reflection of Love — A Different Kind of Love Story pierces your heart with its raw honesty and insightfulness. It’s peppered with equal doses of hope and the hell that was Frances’ addiction and takes us to a place of knowing, as surely as we can, that women can and do survive addiction - and go on to both thrive and inspire others to consider recovery as a new way of life. This book is a testament to the female warrior spirit. Kudos to Frances for recovering out loud

An insightful look into the personal transformation of one woman, a woman like one you probably know, or probably are. Well written, heartfelt, and honest.

Reading ‘A Reflection of Love ~ A Different Kind of Love Story’ was a beautiful experience, which filled me with thankfulness and gratitude. Frances is able to somehow find the words to portray her journey in such a way that fills the reader with hope, literally in the face of heartbreak, fear and grief. Her words convey a strength that crosses many personal situations - I found resonance and meaning and maybe most importantly grace and hope. A brave story.

Over Christmas, Frances Stone – with the generous support of the New Westminster Recovery Community & PowHERtalks Women’s Network – donated 30 copies of her memoir ‘A Reflection of Love ~ A Different Kind of Love Story’ to our community. For those living in intense poverty – and often without stable housing – a book can be a powerful source of inspiration & connection for people. We’re grateful for the gift of community & healing.

Holy! So much food for thought. The writing itself was so detailed and descriptive that I was easily able to envision the setting and emotional tone of each chapter. What a gift this book is to all women. I had so many moments while reading it that I could identify with. And wow! The question pages were so insightful. Especially the one on page 11! I had never thought of it that way!!!! I totally do that!
