joan anderson wrote another wonderful and exciting book about a journey to a small island off of scotland called iona. it has magical powers that only the natives know of and she soon discovers. the people are eccentric and loving as they take her into their lives.
joan anderson pulls you in immediately and never lets you go. as women, we all have faced the same situations with raising families, having a husband that just doesn't get it, at time, married children with families, in-laws that adds to the dynamics within the family structure, parents that are becoming dependent children as they age, while still running one's own life as best as one can.
the second journey is exactly that... a second journey, where she goes on "vacation" once again to find herself. a journey that keeps you bound to her page after page. she captured me immediately and made me part of this extraordinary phase in her life only to realize my own journey. in life, we all feel, once in a while, that we are alone, our problems are not like anyone else's... we struggle alone and in silence. joan anderson brings all this to light and how universal this is. we are not alone and ever have been. she's your new best friend, sharing her thoughts as you realize your own.
