Once in a while I find a new writer who truly speaks to my heart. Although I wish it
were more common, not everyone is able to purposefully seek out a life of WONDER.
And it's even more rare to then write a beautifully articulated book about it. I believe
that wonder, awe, joy, and silliness, are our inherent and natural state, the state we
originally arrive here with. Lori Kane is an author who not only believes this but feels so
passionately about being unabashedly wonder-filled, seeking grace-led humor, and joy-
filled wisdom, being brave enough to seek your own personal legend, your raw,
wonderful life. Lori Kane has written a deeply moving, humorous, elegant treatment of
human emotion and human potential. I highly recommend this book to those who are
or want to be Playful Elders and for those seeking to intentionally live purposefully with
all that life throws at them and survive despite of it and in the end, maybe even feel

From the Author
If you're wondering if this book would make a good gift for someone, here's what I can tell you so far. About 125 members of my community were prereaders or early first readers of this book. Of those people, 123 people either really enjoyed it (4 stars) or absolutely loved it (5 stars). These people were women, men, progressives, conservatives, people of color, white folks, urban, rural, white collar, blue collar, religious, not religious, educators, artists, scientists, spiritual leaders, self-employed, employees within large and small organizations, and retired people. As a whole, they live in all major regions of the U.S. and in more than a dozen countries around the world. They also range in age from 30 to 75. So I feel comfortable suggesting Unshaken Wonder as a gift for most people.
My two dear friends who couldn't make it through the book describe themselves as "100% all-in Trump supporters" during a time that's been exceedingly painful for them. They couldn't get past some of the pain that I and others in my community experienced in 2017 and 2018. They also love me enough that they refused to leave reviews on Amazon, fearing that their reviews would interfere with my book sales. Isn't that wonderful? Humans are amazing. So, if you're buying a gift for a friend or family member like these two brave friends of mine, then I suggest skipping this book and cooking them a meal and taking them out dancing or to a movie instead.
