“This journal is not only rich in the love of nature and the love of solitude. It is an honorable confession of the writer's faults, fears, sadness, and disappointments. . . . On the surface, Journal of a Solitude is a quiet book, but if you will read it carefully you will be aware of violent needs and a valiant warrior who has battled every inch of the way to a share of serenity. This is a beautiful book, wise and warm within its solitude.”
- Eugenia Thornton, Cleveland Plain Dealer

This journal of a year shows the cost of meeting contradictory demands on her time. To have a poem gestating in her mind, and yet to be called away to speak at a university or at a book signing she had agreed to month prior, set up a necessary tension in her life.
Much as she complains about it, I think part of her liked the attention.
Read this book and find yourself honoring your own power to be truly human.
Jan Marquart, author and psychotherapist
Inspiring, raw, intimate.
