Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Sleep Unbound portrays the life of Samya, an Egyptian woman who is taken at age 15 from her Catholic boarding school and forced into a loveless and humiliating marriage. Eventually sundered from every human attachment, Samya lapses into despair and despondence, and finally an emotionally caused paralysis. But when she shakes off the torpor of sleep, the sleep of avoidance, she awakens to action with the explosive energy of one who has been reborn.

I was hoping for a jacket blurb or a summary on the book's content, but no luck. However, your site wanted to know what I think about the title: FROM SLEEP UNBOUND. Well, the title was romantic enough and as mysterious sounding as sleep itself, so I opened up to the page. Ms. Knapp is a remarkable thinker and writer on archetype, myth, and Jung, so I am interested in following wherever her work leads.
Maybe I will get this book later, but for now, It's unavailable and may not be pertinent to my exact needs at the moment.
