The Long Steep Path

Very different from her other books, this one is a series of inspirations that have enabled her to walk the steep hill of her recovery and her life. I found them moving, and especially enjoyed hearing them in her own voice.

A Reminder

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. The short essays came to me as a reminder of the parts of my own life I often forget to cherish. Also, being read by the author gave it special meaning.
