cover imageSunshine Among the Clouds challenges us in the same way as life to make it through the dark, difficult portions for the reward of all the happy, exciting events that life offers. While those dark times can be a challenge, without them, we wouldn't be able to truly appreciate the joy when it comes. The book might be described as an autoduography, since it tells the same life as described through two very different lenses. The first half describes decades of suffering through every failure and dark emotion of the human psyche.
