About the Book

The Blue Stocking gives voice to the silent thinking of a modern woman in a conventional society masked by unconventionalism to forge a path of progress in the world which turns faster than any one of us can grasp. In its spin, are years trapped in the minds of a young woman who was too mature for her crowd but too young to break out for she was not bold to hurt the very culture which gave her the grace to move as much forward as they held her back to be on top. These essay, although written singularly with the selfish perception the thoughts only belonged to this young woman but in fact rings true in most of similar circumstances. However, the love which grows within her may have been the selfish desire to remain independently singular but in fact taught her to expand the love even further with wisdom, understanding, fortitude, knowledge from right to wrong (although only thinking makes it so), and the courage to do right spiritually because an inch within us remain the comfort of the compassion of saving her soul from the destitution of the real meaning of love. A must read for eye-opening revelations for those still learning to love and yearning for love. You may think you have lost it but this book gives you the conviction, it can never die because nothing good ever does.

About the Author

Rena Shan lives in Malaysia with her family and is currently teaching at KYS Business School, Melaka as the Director of the Centre of Languages and General Studies. She has also worked at various international schools teaching primary to secondary IGCSE and A-Levels in Malaysia. Her multi-national network gave rise to her first book "Collage of Dualism", although it was mainly to amuse a lonely expatriate colleague and his family. She is still thinking against the waves of conventionality and paves her own path with Lord's help- and God knows she needs a lot of it. Her general aim in life is to be useful to those in need of what she gives. For she observes "We live in a world of challenges and we all know we could do with a little help one way or another". The voice of silence in thinking is the "Blue Stoking" that gives her the license to speak truth in all honesty without qualms. Heartbreaking at times, by grace, it speaks to heal as she desires all the time in her life.
