Book Report -- Carol Recommends

Wintering: The Power of Rest and Retreat in Difficult Times by Katherine May
Book Report -- Carol Recommends

A very personal look at the ways Katherine May dealt with a series of life altering events; her husband became ill, her young son stopped going to school, and she stepped away from a demanding job due to her own health issues.

May describes wintering as “a fallow period in life when you’re cut off from the world, feeling rejected, sidelined, blocked from progress, or cast into the role of an outsider.”

She describes how she rode out the storm by taking advantage of opportunities that arose and sort of hibernating at the same time. She weaves literature, nature, philosophy, and life experiences into her journey.

May is a gifted writer and I found this book fascinating.


This title is available in print at the Library and downloadable ebook and eaudio through Overdrive/Libby.
