Life in a different world Feb. 9 2014
By Forrest - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
People dream of escaping the hectic life but very few actually do it. In this excellent writing Anne Yarbrough describes life on an island off the coast of Nova Scotia, inhabited by two people. It is a life where she was able to stop and observe the details of life around her, the beauty of her surroundings, the wildlife, the new way of life they had to adapt to. This is a well written adventure. I enjoyed it very much and would recommend it.

Great Little Meditations on Geographic Isolation May 15 2013

Short essays on living for a few years on an island on the coast of Nova Scotia. Having lived for a decade in the remote interior of this province, Anne Yarborough's writings were like sparkling diamonds to me.
Evocative, peaceful, thoughtful meditation on (a magical) place March 11 2014
By Emilie - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I bought this because I am obsessed with Nova Scotia :) I dream of moving there one day, or at the very least I hope I get to go there for a long visit. Until that dream becomes a reality, this wonderful book is my indulgence. Whenever I open it, I am transported to a deliciously lonely forested island off the south shore of Nova Scotia, and the very seasons and elements become my intimate teachers and friends.

I like to read one or to of the short pieces each day, though lately I try to pace myself because I don't want it to end...

The writing is clear, vivid and serene, and instills in me a feeling of sipping crystal water from a forest spring. The book is a meditation on place, and contains little drops of insight that I personally felt very enriched by, I have highlighted many passages.

I recommend it to anyone interested in clear awareness and simple living, being close to nature, to anyone who enjoys standing in the wind and rain and feeling alive and small and growing and changing with the seasons.

Well written and insightful. Makes you want to head to Nova Scotia and spend the winter. Well, maybe not but Ms. Yarbrough is able to depict every little thing in an enjoyable and positive light.
