Overview

Light in Shadows: A Memoir by Adam MacDonald

At the age of 12, Adam's 40 year old mother left the family for her 20 year old ski instructor. With the divorce leaving his father emotionally absent. Adam's life began to spiral downward. Living with friends and a surrogate family, he found himself threatened with a restraining order, kicked out of high school, living with a drug dealer and pushing away a girl he loved who gave him a chance.

Losing his sense of self, Adam moved downtown with his band mates. When he woke up in the hospital a second time, it was then in his darkest hour with a poisoned body and a deeply troubled mind that it came to him - an epiphany of hope and awakening.

Light in Shadows is a cautionary tale of adolescence, a young man's journey to his darkest corners where at his absolute end, he discovers his spiritual beginning.
