A balanced blend of fiction and nonfiction that offers inspiration and encouragement without reference to a particular faith or religion. The various genres of fiction feature characters who reap rewards or consequences appropriate to their actions. The diverse selection of nonfiction echoes today's discussions of ethics, values, and morals.Loneliness is the hidden wound of our time, the price many have paid for embracing such frontier values as independence, self-reliance and competence. Rachel Remen invites us to see below the surface and remember that we are connected and can become one another's healers. Her stories, picked from the tree of life, are dedicated to the ordinary hero in all of us and stand witness to life's natural tendency to heal our wounds. In them, we discover that our life's goal may be the ability to travel together with humor and meaning, with purpose and quality companionship, with warmth and tenderness.
