Book Description

July 1, 2002
Written in verse like a children's book, Lilabean is a story for today's stressed-out, over-worked woman. It follows one woman's jouney to the simplification and re-prioritization of her life. Each of the 12 chapters provides fresh perspective on feminine issues such as lack of direction, self-esteem, "people-pleasing," the distraction of clutter, the false appeal of shopping, the power of the consumer, and the need for intangible fulfillment. This is a perfect gift book.

Editorial Reviews


Lilabean is a beautifully written book...K.C. White has captured the true essense of simplicity. -- Linda Breen Pierce, author Choosing Simplicity: Real People Finding Peace and Contentment in a Complex World

Lilabean is a delightful romp, a satiric yet incisive look at everywoman's life. -- Wanda Urbanska, author Simple Living: One Couple's Search for a Better Life (et. al.)

About the Author

K.C. White spent a very happy childhood in Elizabeth City, North Carolina in the halcyon days of the 1960's. After high school, she headed to the Big City to pursue a college education and a career. After 30 long years of the stress and frustration of making a living but not having a life, she returned to her hometown to put the principles of Voluntary Simplicity into practice. Lilabean is her first book.

We can all get caught up the hectic world of 'Life in the Fast Lane.' Bills, work, more bills, fast food, depression. We all seek some kind of joy, but sometimes we forget to slow down and take it all in. This book is a fairy tale for grown-ups that is written in such a clever comical way, it is a fantastic read! The rhymes are from the heart, and will reach woman of all ages who feel disheartened by life. It really helps you to slow down, take a deep breath, and 'wake up and smell the coffee.' :D
