About Where Have I Been All My Life?

9781631529177_fcWhere Have I Been All My Life? is a compelling memoir recounting one woman’s journey through grief and a profound feeling of unworthiness to wholeness and healing. It begins with the chillingly sudden death of Rice’s mother, and is followed by her foray into the center of mourning. With wisdom, grace, and humor, Rice recounts the grief games she plays in an effort to resurrect her mother; her misguided efforts to get her therapist to run away with her (or at least accept her gifts); and the transformation of her husband from fantasy man to ordinary guy to superhero. In the process, she experiences aching revelations about her family and her past—and realizes what she must leave behind, and what she can carry forward with her.

Poignant, tender, and sometimes hilarious, Where Have I Been All My Life? is Rice’s universally relatable story of how she found sustenance for the difficult—but vital—journey toward love and wholeness in an unexpected place: herself.
