Book Description

Nov. 1 2011
A Celebration of Country Life! What happens when a farm girl from South Carolina and a city boy from Toronto trade their suburban split-level for a log house in the country? Besides crazy craft on the Ganny and live theatre in a barnyard, Eric & Mary Helen Wright discover crickets in the bedroom, thunder on the ridges, and romance in a snowstorm. They also rediscover the creative majesty of God. In a series of short anecdotes, Through a Country Window captures joys experienced, lessons learned, and challenges faced as the Wrights adjust to life out where the sky springs free. "A delightful journey down roads seldom explored... gentle reminders of the joy in simplicity and the power of faith... the vacation ends too soon!" -Phil Callaway, author of Making Life Rich Without Any Money. "Joyful, wistful, and often funny, this is a book to delight the reader." -Claire Mowat, author of The Outport People. "Lyrical and affectionate, with a wry wonder at Nature's gifts and human nature." -Ronald Wright, author of Time Among the Maya; Stolen Continents. Eric E. Wright has worked in Asia and Ontario as a teacher, pastor, freelance writer, and seminary professor. He has degrees in forestry and theology. Eric and his southern wife, Mary Helen, live out their country dream in the rolling hills of Northumberland, east of Toronto.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful, restful book April 17 2012
Format:Paperback
I bought Through A Country Window when it was first published a number of years ago and it's been a treasured friend in my book collection ever since. This is a book for grown-ups: there are no annoying car chases or ridiculous stories about international intrigue. Instead, we're blessed with chapter after chapter chronicling a semi-retired couple leaving the big city for a log house in the countryside of southern Ontario.

There are snippets of small-town life through community events, along with comical retelling of adventures and misadventures with wildlife and pets, planting gardens and trees and more. Much of this is seen through a gentle filter of faith in God and His creation. I've read Through A Country Window twice and enjoyed it even more the second time.

5.0 out of 5 stars An inspiration for moving to the country June 23 2012
By P. Olorenshaw - Published on Amazon.com
I discovered this book at West Wings in Stirling, Ontario during the year that we spent exploring Eastern Ontario to decide where we wanted to live. Back in Toronto, I relished each story and many of them still return to me seven years later as I look out my own country window. The pictures Eric painted of life in the country just confirmed my desire to get out of the big city and I've never regretted the move. Thanks!
