5.0 out of 5 stars The story of a life writ large. March 26, 2015
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I first read Jan's book after taking one of her women's retreats. I loved hearing her brave journeys, external and internal, and felt empowered reading about someone who lives large. Jan had encountered hostility within her church and was ostracized. After grieving, she decided to do what she could to make changes. By using photography and love, she set out around the world to create peace. I have bought this book for friends who were suffering to show how pain can be turned around and used creatively for good.

5.0 out of 5 stars After almost ten years, I can't get it out of my mind! October 1, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
"Making Peace: A woman's journey around the world" came to me by pure luck. I was a nurse working night shift, and a patient I was taking care of, explained that her granddaughter had just met the author as she passed through Kentucky. My patient showed me Jan's book and on my patient's discharge from the hospital, left the book by mistake. I found it in a junk drawer months later and felt the book was too special to leave at the hospital. I have read journal entries to many people. It is always a conversation piece. Her photography of third world cultures, capturing their lives and loving their souls truely captured my heart. I happened upon this site trying to find more work by this woman. One of the best books I have read. It's been almost ten years and I can't get it out of my mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Total eye opener October 23, 2005
By Mariah
Format:Paperback
I would have never read or heard of this book if it wasn't for my freshmen year of college. The inital semester the college creates your schedule for you and I had a 200 level Literature course. This was one of our readings. I fell in love with this book. I loved the artwork, her photography, but also how she uses her photography to communicate with cultures around the world. The journal entries are amazing. I have recommended this book to many people since then and am very glad that I got "stuck" in that class.
