Who is Daniel O’Beeve? Daniel is one of the fragments of the whole life of the universe who got damaged in the earliest years of his fragile little life. And his story is the all too human story of whether it is possible to repair that damage; and if so, how?Perhaps his story is an important part of the scrambled jigsaw puzzle that is your own life story?The life of Daniel O’Beeve…To be born into the loveless marriage of unhappy parents is a double tragedy. Firstly because of what you do not get, as an unloved child; and secondly because of what you do not learn to give: the frozen love in your unawakened heart!Daniel writes:“I was born into the devastation and grinding poverty of post-colonial Ireland, at the end of the Second World War. My circumstances were such that there was no likely way of recovering from the cultural deprivation and emotional illiteracy into which I was thrown.“There was no way, that anybody could possibly have expected, or anticipated, or assumed, that my life could be other than a total write-off.“But the heart knows things of which reason barely can guess; and my heart set out (without the awareness of my mind) on a cold and lonely journey – a blind quest – away from the brutality of crushed love! Away from its birthplace; away from the pain; and towards… nothing discernible… nothing visible. Nothing that could be envisioned. But perhaps there was a kind of sense – or scent – of the possibility of hope…“Where I would end up, who could possibly say? But travel away I had to do. I had to go. Pushed and pulled by unconscious forces of which I knew nothing.“If you want to find out where this road led me, and the challenges of finding escape hatches, worm holes, and narrative shifts into parallel realities, you should read this book".
