Beschreibung

Cynthia Reyes has done it again. Picking up from the early days of her recovery from a car accident, as told in her first book, A Good Home, she shares in this new book intensely lyrical stories of life in her historic farmhouse north of Toronto.

You will hear the birds sing, smell the flowers in their lavish gardens, and taste the red currant jelly and other dishes from plants grown on her property.

You will be challenged as the author immerses you in the reality of post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and the courage it takes to live with chronic pain. And you will say a wrenching farewell to the farmhouse as she opens a new chapter in a life still devoted to creating beauty out of the materials that life serves up to her, be they dark and haunting or light and joyful.

Praise for the author's previous book, A Good Home:

"...full of warmth, deep emotions, and a vibrant understanding of just what a home can mean." -YVONNE BLACKWOOD, author of Into Africa: The Return

"Reyes' glass is almost always half full, but ours, as we read her uplifting story, always brims over." -COLIN McALLISTER and JUSTIN RYAN, www.colinandjustin.tv

"...There is magic in these words." -DEBRA USHER, President and Editor-in-Chief, Arabella Magazine

"...proves - word by word, line by line, and page by page - you can go home again." -LEE GOWAN, author of Confession

"... contains some of the most moving and recognizable accounts of happiness and grief that I have ever come across." -HILARY CUSTANCE GREEN, author of Surviving the Death Railway: A POW's Memoir and Letters from Home
