    Trusting the Currents is a multi-award winning visionary novel that guides readers into their own truth and transformation. Narrated by Addie Mae Aubrey, a Southern, African American woman, the story begins with Addie Mae at age eleven and the arrival of beautiful cousin Jenny and her shadowy stepfather, Uncle Joe. As Jenny introduces Addie Mae to the natural world, a caring teacher guides Addie Mae with the power of reading. Romantic love enters her life for the first time with Rawley, and we learn how Addie Mae’s emerging sense of self compels her to a life-altering decision, even as tragedy and evil shakes their lives. Addie Mae reveals how life blossoms when we have the courage to not only accept but also learn from our mistakes and sorrows. Her story may belong to one woman, but the lessons it teaches belong to everyone willing to open their hearts and listen to the truth within their souls.
