A Dance in the Woods Perfect Paperback – June 25, 2007
I was spellbound and found myself running the entire gamut of emotions towards Anna and her family and rejoiced as they finally began to heal. An excellent and highly recommended book. --Peggie Devan, Author and Poet, Sarasota, Florida
Once I started this book, I found that I could not put it down as I traveled through those dark woods with the Benton family. I laughed, I cried and loved the ending. --Dianne Purcell, Manchester, New Hampshire

Shortly after losing her daughter, Janet and her husband and two children spent three years in Italy where her husband had a military assignment. In a country where she couldn’t speak the language and suffered numerous severe illnesses that went undiagnosed, Brennan gradually came to depend on her own understanding and inner spirituality to heal her mind and body. She began to explore her own inner resources, learning to meditate and discern deep spiritual lessons from others, often without the necessity of words. She became a keen observer of nature, people and life as she healed. In this book she shares many insights gained during this tumultuous period of her life. “My temple is within me,” she writes. “The more pure I try to keep it, the more balanced I am.”
A Dance in the Woods, a Mother’s Insight, is written with a distinct and lovely lyrical style, disarming honesty and courage. Original poems and photographs add further dimension and understanding for the reader. Brennan’s visual imagery is stunning, and the reader will long for a taste of the fresh vegetables grown in her villa’s garden and the wonderful marinara sauce she makes from it.
An accomplished and award-winning novelist, poet, pianist, editor and publisher, Janet K. Brennan lives with her husband and numerous pets in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the home of their publishing house, Casa de Snapdragon.
