I love finding and telling a good story, especially one that was untold and sheds new light on a subject. And I love giving voice to individuals and groups who have been marginalized or misunderstood. In this multi-cultural, generational saga, we hear from the women and children.

Twelve year old Junior Thompson’s clear-eyed truth-telling introduces us to a soldier suffering from “soldier’s heart” (the Civil War term for what we now know as post traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD) and his shocking actions during a church service, on April 9, 1865, the day Lee surrenders to Grant.(less)

“Depression can be a form of self hatred. We don't feel comfortable in our own skin.”
Michele Mcknight Baker, Sandpaper Sisters

“Are you willing to care enough to get hurt?”
Michele Mcknight Baker, Sandpaper Sisters

“Then the vulture swooped down and away, racing the LeTort spring to the Conodoguinet Creek from there to the Susquehanna river and from there to the sea. Same river my ancestors took to reach the places where they hunted and farmed and buried their dead.”
Michele Mcknight Baker

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.”
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

“It is a great thing to start life with a small number of really good books which are your very own.”
Arthur Conan Doyle

“If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.”
C.S. Lewis

“Safe?” said Mr. Beaver; “don’t you hear what Mrs. Beaver tells you? Who said anything about safe? ‘Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good. He’s the King, I tell you.”
C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

“Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.”
Corrie ten Boom
