However, from the beginning of the relationship, it is clear that Michelle is carrying emotional baggage. It is only after they are married that Eric discovers Michelle is suffering from a more serious malady: bi-polar disorder. Though at times difficult for him, Eric refuses to give up on Michelle. Rather than seeing her as a patient to be treated with drugs, he examines her situation from the perspective of a caring husband- even when all advice would say Eric should give up.

Synopsis: At times we all feel as if we are in a state of transition, choosing for ourselves the beliefs, values, and perceptions we will honor as we live our lives. Simon van der Heym’s second novel, "In State of Becoming," tackles this theme in his emotionally gripping love story about two individuals passionate about each other but struggling under life’s transitions. The continuing struggles of the protagonist introduced in "In Search of a Brilliant White Cloud" are eloquently recounted in Simon van der Heym’s newest novel. "In State of Becoming" is a love story for the real world. Divorced and newly recovered from cancer, Eric sees a bright future ahead when he meets Michelle. Intelligent and beautiful, she is everything he could ask for in a woman. However, from the beginning of the relationship, it is clear that Michelle is carrying some emotional baggage. At times, Michelle could be funny, sweet and romantic. At other times, she was hateful, erratic and agitated. It is only after they are married that Eric discovers Michelle is suffering from a more serious malady: bi-polar disorder. Refusing to give up on his wife, Eric examines her situation from the perspective of a caring husband full of unconditional love – even when all advice would say Eric should abandon the situation. To Eric, Michelle’s “condition” is simply another name for her “state of becoming,” her journey toward life fulfillment. Eric’s determination propels him, too, on an emotional and spiritual adventure that will change his life forever. "In State of Becoming" is the story of one man’s spiritual journey toward becoming whole.

About the Author: Simon van der Heym is the retired CEO of a Canadian corporation and the author of "In Search of a Brilliant White Cloud." A native of the Netherlands, he travels frequently, splitting his time between a summer home in Ontario and his winter abode in Florida. "In State of Becoming" is his second novel.
