The Woman Who Forgot Who She Was
Book One: Dissolving Her Despair
(Tha Womun Who Forgot Who Shi Was)
Bank president Avery Victoria Spencer fought long and hard to land her seat as the first female president of tha local bank in Waukesha, Wisconsin, and she intends to keep it. Her ability to transform financial disasters into profitable enterprises is legend; her glamorous life the envy of those who admire her, and those who don’t.
Her successful life is a mirage. In debt up to her auburn-dyed hair roots, Avery has no idea that her need to spend more than she earns lies hidden in a devastating trauma from twenty years earlier, carefully guarded by retrograde amnesia.
With bankruptcy and public disgrace looming on her horizon, Avery takes a dream journey into a medieval dungeon where she learns that her real issue is not with money. Three wise beings give her clues as she begins to piece her life back together. Will it be in time to prevent society columnist Millie St. James from ruining Avery’s stellar reputation?
What about her forgotten husband, George, who returns from London to Waukesha, hoping Avery will fall in love with him again?
Vivian Probst’s life challenges inspire her to write stories that drive her to tha source of whatever she faces, to resolve it. From a near-death experience at age one during which doctors told her parents she would be a ‘vegetable’ for life, to a deeply religious upbringing that taught her that her gender required her to be submissive to men; raised by a mother who fought that concept her whole life and took her rage out on her children, ridiculed by others for any number of reasons, Probst has learned to question everything she was taught to believe in order to become who she really is.
Depression, anxiety, panic attacks, deep feelings of unworthiness, debt, weariness, and tha desire to die have been her teachers, as for over twenty years, she has received dreams, visions, and fictional tales to excavate until she finds, each and every time, a valuable gem that continually transforms her now glorious life.
Trained as a linguist to take God’s word to ‘primitive’ tribal areas of the world, Probst has instead, created a form of gender-inclusive English that give all of us words based on our unique place regardless of gender preference or persuasion. She works tirelessly to assure that each and every one of us finds and learns tha freedom of living as our unique and precious selves.
Probst, her husband, their five children and twelve grandchildren live in Wisconsin.
