My Recommendation

This book is an adventure I never knew I needed as a writer. Dripping with empathy and real-life wonderment about the highs and lows that cleave to writers and the intersection with day-to-day variables—such as relationships, hobbies, sacred spaces and more—Lisle is ever a timeless artist in her medium of words and their arrangement. 

Unexpected, essential surprises touched me deeply—as a woman without children, when I pondered her sentiment, “I recognized that creative work that demands inspiration and inventiveness, as well as many hours alone, needs to be protected and nurtured not unlike taking care of a child.” Freedom flitted off these pages. Whether the reader works in literary circles or simply desires to read about the life of an intentionally-perseverant woman, I wholeheartedly recommend this work.
