The Heart of All That Is: Reflections on Home

We rated this book:


Frank L. Baum told us all there is no place like home, but what he didn’t tell us is that home is different for everyone. Sometimes it is a great memory, sometimes a wish or a dream, sometimes a cottage in the woods, sometimes a cardboard box under a bridge. This anthology explores the many different facets of home as examined by a wide variety of writers through poetry and personal essays – nearly eighty poems and twenty essays. Do we think of home in the same way now as we did when we were children? Do we think of home in the same way when we are away from it as we do when we are there? Do we think of home the same when we are alone as we do when surrounded by family and loved ones? The many writers explore the many dimensions to the concept that is home and leave the readers to ponder what is real and what is right for each of us. This collection will be a voyage home for many, and a delightful one at that.
