These eye-opening and interconnected pieces weave the individual selections into a tapestry of collective experiences.

About the author:

Vivian Feggans believes the transit of memory reveals powerful truths that spark inner healing and restoration, and she often writes from that perspective. In 2004, she founded a writing retreat for women. The mission was to provide a safe spiritual place where attendees could feel inspired and free to transfer their deepest feelings and experiences into writing. Feggans’ fond memories of her late mother, Sarah Simpson Feggans, an avid reader and lover of the arts, remain a source of inspiration in her writing. She lives in Hyattsville, Maryland.
