BUT THIS IS DIFFERENT embodies the despair we must be willing to feel if we are to truly love, and gives us hope that we can integrate not only our separate islands but our separate selves. Mary Walker Baron has crafted a eco-philosophical, eco-psychological and eco-spiritual masterpiece of profound significance and joy. --Jackie Lanum PhD. - Professor, Santa Monica College, International Community of Ecopsychologists, Joanna Macy facilitator
About the Author
Mary Walker Baron is a clinical social worker. CONTRARY CREEK her first novel, which she wrote in partnership with her brother, Tom Walker, continues to receive high praise. Although she has never lived on an island in the South Pacific, Mary has proven to herself on more than one occasion that any landing you can walk away from is - if not perfect - at least good enough.
