The story is a mythical depiction of myself split in two and a clear explanation for the original cause of hearing voices. Daisy is the girl I allowed others to see for most of my life, while Rose is the part of me that was repressed and wounded.
I believe there is great value in allowing the unconscious or disassociated parts of ourselves expression. I gained many insights from this book about why I hear voices, and I hope others will as well.

Whoever you are - voice-hearer, carer, clinician or curious traveller - I hope you enjoy the story and that you are inspired to continue your own journeys of healing, and that you have the courage to follow the path back to your beginnings, back to find the parts long ago abandoned…
