Recovering is an Art by Astrid Lee Miles
Book One in the Recovering Collection


New Cover- Front Recovering is an Art is my debut novel. It features a first-person perspective of the psychological damages caused by neglect and rape. It is the first book in an ongoing series about everyday people that are living through taboo challenges. This collection is my way of saying, “Hey, the more we talk about it, the better it will be!”

I truly love this book. During a particularly difficult life situation, I was inspired to write this novel. My depression had made me plummet to a low I had never gotten to before.

I desperately needed an escape. I needed a place to write about my thoughts and feelings. Then someone I knew said they could not believe that any movie containing rape was a “good” movie. Cue me being thoroughly pissed off. I was (and am) sick of rape and abuse being topics that need to be hush, hush. All that does is make the men and women that have been through these challenging experiences feel more excluded and different.

I hope that when people read my book, they can see that they are not alone. That so many others out there are feeling the pain that they feel. Most important, I hope that they see how amazing they are and that life is worth living.

So Recovering is an Art was going to be a standalone novel, until one night when I read about a man that had been abused for years, and no one would help him. This sparked an idea. Why not write about other people and topics that are difficult for people to stomach? I was going to publish Recovering is an Art in a couple of months when I decided to I change the entire ending in order to continue working on the series. I am glad that I had waited to publish.

I am starting with Sam and then continuing down the line of life’s challenges.
