Wandering Wounds is an expression of feelings and / or experiences of life's turbulent journey. Pain, anger, and grief mixed with hope are forefront through childhood to adulthood. The poems' presentations differ in styles and formats and many use allegories and / or metaphor to deliver their message.Opening pieces, universal in nature, relate to effects on life, moving through depression, the battle against evil and life's frustrations. The focus then turns to specific causal areas of life's trials and sorrows, such as illness and recovery, physical and sexual abuse of children and adults, and drug and alcohol addiction. Poems will traverse the wondrous mountain peaks and the deepest and darkest gullies of love.Much of the writing contains a morphing quality, as life's circumstances change you will find poems revealing new meaning.James L. Finley's first book Wandering Wounds shines a light upon the hope that resides on the outskirts of "Happiness Falls".

Alexis White spent much of her youth going after what she wanted and not caring who she hurt. She didn't care about Christopher's wife when she pursued an affair with him, but years later, she can admit that she was also wounded in the process. She's still dealing with the anguish of having aborted Christopher's baby and then losing the one man she believes ever loved her fully. In spite of her pain, Alexis realizes life must go on. More than a decade later, she has a successful pediatrics practice and is engaged to Jamar Duplessis. They have survived Hurricane Katrina, but with Hurricane Gustav threatening to strike, Alexis and Jamar must pack up and flee New Orleans. Unfortunately, Alexis finds herself right in the eye of another storm when she and Jamar decide to wait out the hurricane in Virginia Beach. Christopher and his wife Andrea live there, and are still nursing the wounds that Alexis helped to cause. Although Jamar is determined not to let this potential drama stress out his fiancée, an unexpected glitch in his finances demands his attention and nearly drives a wedge between him and Alexis. Someone is definitely out for revenge, but who? Is it Andrea? Christopher? Or maybe it's Alexis's former archrival, Nikki, who also makes a surprise appearance in Virginia Beach. Will Alexis be able to face the demons she thought she'd slayed years ago? This is a story of family, friendship, and forgiveness that proves that while time passes, some wounds never heal.
