21 Riding the Tides of Life
Raymond D. Tremblay tells the story of Greta
Ludwig, a 29-year-old Franco-Ontarian and Métis widow who is a successful
bookstore owner in Ottawa. Due to the stress she encounters in
her young life, she experiences a mental breakdown and requires
psychiatric hospitalization. Once she is discharged, she is introduced
to a psychiatrist who begins to play an important role in her life. To
facilitate her recovery, she volunteers at the Shepherds of Good Hope, an organization serving the homeless
in Ottawa. Once she regains her self-confidence, she becomes a frontline
worker in their men’s shelter but is physically assaulted by one of
their residents. Will this incident trigger another manic phase of her
underlying illness? Will she be able to return to work with the
homeless? Will the support of family, friends, professionals and her
unfailing faith in her Creator and Mother Earth be sufficient to give
her the strength to cope with life’s future challenges? 206 pp.
