In her literary debut, Vision of the Past, Isis James looks back to both light and dark moments that gave color to her life and ultimately molded her into what she is today— a victor. This new book, shot through with wit and honesty, is both a deeply moving story of James’ odyssey of self-discovery and a universal tale of redemption and healing.

James had always wanted to write this book. The long-awaited fulfillment of her dream let her see how troubled her life was—she suffered physical and sexual assault—but more importantly it made her realize that despite all the odds that lay in her path, she was able to find personal success and become stronger. With candor and bravery, James gives voice to the darkness that comes during times of weakness and vulnerability but she also celebrates those moments of joy and hope that gave light to her world. James’ journey is not without its share of hardship but in the end she demonstrates resilience and courage. Her story, although deeply personal, is imbued with universal truths that anyone can learn from.

Honest and filled with exquisitely nuanced insights, Vision of the Past is at once an extraordinary true story of hope and a triumphant testament of the human spirit.
