Two years ago, psychotherapist Chris Cameron was devastated by the murder of her partner, Robyn. Even now she struggles daily with the loss as she once again tries to find meaning in her own life. Living in a culture that offers psychotropic drugs, celebrity therapists, ‘reality’ television, junk food, phone sex, credit cards, and banal entertainment as diversions from pain and to avoid the recognition of loss, will Chris be able to rediscover her spirit? Does her resurrection rest within the very symbol of pain–Descanso’s–the makeshift roadside shrines that dot the landscape of the West that symbolize loss and transformation? Will she ever be able to love again? A blend of humor, loss, social commentary, and relationships, Descanso takes you on a moving, tragic, yet exhilarating journey from despair to hope and redemption.
