Overview

Award-winning writer Meeka Walsh kept these journals while travelling - in Israel, Rome and Russia - and when she was home again. They share magic found in unexpected places - from a waiting room in a Moscow airport where the author enjoys a picnic with friends, to a yard in Winnipeg where an elderly gardener has fashioned himself a lover from a hedge. The journals also share the author's private journey from a bitter divorce to a renewed sense of herself and life's possibilities. "An intimate and intelligent journey through countries both foreign and familiar, real and imagined. I like the woman who wrote this book, who allowed me to see the daily unfolding of her ordinary and magical life. "-Lorna Crozier.
