A Life Being Lived Enjoys Healing

The books that Danu Studies Inc. presents on this website, each with a unique approach to storytelling, provide an added dimension to the never-ending search for wellbeing and healing.

Fiction and fantasy propel our narratives, the search for meaning and understanding as real or valid as any other form of exploration.  Meanwhile on Cloud Nine takes a whimsical look at humanity’s abdication of responsibility for its own wellbeing and how that might be corrected, while Smitten, based in the “real” world, shows how love and forgiveness can bring about healing.

We are pleased and proud to include these books on our website, because they represent only one of the many forms the quest for knowledge and understanding takes. We trust that those who choose to purchase them, will take what they need from them and incorporate it into their own journey.

Jacob Hogeterp’s books

Jacob (Jake) Hogeterp is the author of two novels, and edits fiction, and general articles. He’s also known to be something of a handyperson around the Sweet Hollows Haven premises. He attributes his versatility to an insatiable curiosity, a rich imagination and the firm conviction that it ain’t necessarily so just because others say it is. That trio keeps his smile wry and his advice reliable.

Between the Notes; How Long COVID Paused my Life by Rebecca Hogeterp with Jacob Hogeterp

Between the Notes CoverWhile the entire world is in turmoil over COVID-19, Rebecca Hogeterp, a self-employed piano teacher, is forced to withdraw more and more from day-to-day events just to get through a very rough patch. She’s been told it’s probably a bad case of the flu. But many of the symptoms are nothing like any flu she has ever experienced. Losing her sense of taste and smell, and the ability to walk unassisted are just the beginning. The rough patch morphs into what she and the medical profession come to learn is the seeming endless nightmare of long COVID.

“Between the Notes” is, however, not just the story of her struggle with the illness, but also an affirmation of the triumph of kindness, love compassion and determination over adversity.

Smitten, by Jacob Hogeterp

Smitten coverCharting your own way does not mean you have to abandon those you care about. Tom Zondervan learns this the hard way, often in increments, and sometimes too late, as he tiptoes over the boggy terrain on which his community has set the firm foundation of its moralistic underpinning. Tempting as it is to judge the follies of others, he himself becomes wracked with guilt over the betrayal of his best friend. Loss is his harshest teacher; finding redemption in reaching out, an unexpected lesson. And then, by finding forgiveness, not from the angry god of his Dutch protestant heritage, but from somewhere deep within himself where love resides, he gets the toehold he’s been seeking all his life.
