Old Bess, young Bess, Elizabeth, Lizzie... are we at the beginning or the end? In a Back to Front and roundabout way, Bess tells the story of how her paths have crossed and sometimes run alongside those of the people she has been sent to guide and support.
As her personal story unfolds we learn that she has not just one path but many and that chronological time is irrelevant when it comes to spiritual guidance and purpose.
Although Back to Front can be read alone, through Bess’ story we are able to ‘join up the dots’ with some of the characters that peopled Inside Out and Upside Down
Bess is the swan sailing serenely across the water, while her coronet wings protect her young charges and her webbed feet paddle furiously beneath the surface.
