Helen Turnbull, Ph. D. introduces the reader to a mystical country, with fifty emotional states, including the State of Reality, the Island State of Inner Wisdom and the State of Rejection. In the beginning, Patience has been asked to write a letter to her niece, and to share her wisdom. Patience falls asleep and much to her surprise, her dreams disclose to her some of the emotional states where she has expended her energies. With gentle guidance from Amethyst, the guardian of Inner Wisdom, Helens characters set out on many soul searching adventures. Arctic of Ice Valley finds herself inside an oak tree where a squirrel called Stasher, assists her in looking at all the ways she has become stuck, whilst the nomadic Ms. Cosmopolitan gets more than her share of life lessons when she is whisked into the Hall of Magic Mirrors.
