Di谩ne Mandle revolutionizes the autobiography with her latest book, The Gift in the Wound.聽

Di谩ne engages the reader by sharing only pivotal moments from her fascinating life in vignettes. Each brief and charming chapter ends with provocative questions to invite readers to reflect on their own life experiences and to appreciate the "gifts in the wounds" in their own journeys. Di谩ne has lived quite the life as the progeny of a beautiful but narcissistic French ballerina and Jewish American World War II soldier turned successful costume jewelry businessman. She becomes a Bohemian theater artist during the 1960s and 70s in Europe and the US. Later, as a single mother with two young sons to raise, Di谩ne takes a bold turn that results in her going from welfare to being a clever leader of respectable local civic organizations. But even though she is on her way to conventional success, she is unhappy and stifled. So, she then again makes another bold and risky change and follows her heart. This leads her on a path to become a sound and energy healer and performer who has touched thousands of lives over the last 25 years. The Gift in the Wound is a compelling page turner! Di谩ne resists the temptation to go into copious details or comprehensive chronology that could have easily warranted a 300+ page memoir. (However, I do hope there will be a The Gift in the Wound, Part 2. I personally would love to read more about her magical life and work as a healer.) The Gift in the Wound makes for an inspiring and entertaining individual read but would also be delightful to read with others in groups, classes, or book clubs.聽

"This story evokes the hero/heroine's journey. It is an inspiring story of facing challenges and the use of strong inner practice and study to heal others as well as oneself. "

Diane Mandle's The Gift in the Wound reveals a common thread in our humanity, first, via the confessional disclosures shared and personal wisdom gleaned from her well-travelled life, and second, in the parallel stories she invites us to create as we dare to answer the soul-stirring questions she poses. Brilliant.
William Tyler

From the start I found Diane Mandle's newest book; 'The Gift in the Wound' captivating. Engaging and empowering are the terms required to describe her heartfelt expressions. I laughed and cried with her as she chronicles a life of hardships, joy and divine interventions; railed against the injustices she endured, rejoiced in her accomplishments and found the gift in her journey of becoming.聽My most endearing discovery, in this well-crafted book, is the recognition of kinship. A reflective understanding, compassion and ultimate wisdom possible in the deeply human journey of living.聽I applaud Ms. Mandle's willingness to share her sojourn of life, her revelations and her mindful insights. 'The Gift in the Wound' is surely a 'Gift' to all who read聽this delightful book.聽
