Sunshine Has Rain.

Sunshine Has Rain by Sherrance Henderson Imperious Publishing, September 2004 $14.90, ISBN 0-975-86241-3

Henderson describes her journey in painstaking and personal detail, through fictional character Channa Renee Jones. Jones becomes paralyzed from a spinal cord injury that occurs in a series of accidents in a six-month period. Sunshine Has Rain begins by laying the groundwork in describing Channa as an overachiever and someone who has it all, basically to the point of conceit. Her world is turned upside down in such a short period of time, dispelling any illusions she has about who her friends and enemies are.

Henderson's prose has a biting attitude. I enjoyed this novel because it's a story of redemption, and it's very human and relatable, even if one hasn't suffered the same grief as the protagonist.
