Bedtime Stories for Women Who Can't Sleep at Night
Tales and Reminiscences for the Awakened Woman
by Laurissa Wieler

Is there anything better than sleeping deeply, and waking up to a rising dawn with a smile? Studies show that 57 percent of North American women experience insomnia at least a few times a week, making their way through restless nights as best they can. Bedtime Stories for Women Who Can’t Sleep at Night: Tales and Reminiscences for the Awakened Woman is a lovely collection of stories and poems imbued with humor, romance and magic. They may lead you to the gates of sleep or inspire you to contemplate life on a lazy afternoon. With this book, author and sleep-seeker Laurissa Wieler invites you journey with her, exploring life’s joys and dilemmas. In doing so, you may discover unknown or forgotten places of refuge. That peaceful state of mind may just be the recipe for a good night’s sleep, and in turn, personal insight leading to more fulfilling days.

"Whether or not you sleep well at night, Laurissa's stories will wrap you and warm you with their artistry and finely woven textures. The readings are varied and engaging. Whether they be tales of truth or magic, the collection is threaded with meaning, beauty and imagination. A coverlet for a perfect night (or lazy afternoon) of reading. Enjoy the journey!" ~ Wendalyn von Meyenfeldt "Laurissa writes with gorgeous words that draw you into a realm where the magical and mysterious happens. Sleep may be elusive at times, but these lovely stories will help you find your way there." ~ Amy Campbell
