The Silence of Morning is many things. A determined and inspired spiritual journey that flows from a deep longing for answers around the greatest life mysteries. A courageous exploration of a fast-paced world that has "no time" for grief. Social and cultural realities that expose the roots of addiction--its endless forms, its many guises--also come to light within this poignant story of loss.
