LETTERS FROM THE ISLAND
Time passes by and we wish we could catch it. Happiness is somewhere to be found but it can elude us, because we look in places that are far away from ourselves. In "Letters from the Island," author, columnist and veteran traveler Julie Lindahl takes us into the quiet space of her Swedish island, where her thoughts catch the moment and find their inspiration in the soil under our feet. Month by month her reflections challenge us to truly see more of the world around us and to find our strength in sensitivity. For every reader who seeks an empathetic companion for living, this collection is a homecoming.
"Letters from the Island" is a selection of articles from Lindahl's popular newspaper column, "Letter from the Island," written for Swedish-American newspaper Norstjernan, during 2006-2009.
About the book
"Every time my Nordstjernan issue comes I look for a ”letter” from you and I feel disappointed if one is not there. You are a great writer. Your musings on life, home, and culture and the dearness of preserving what truly counts is very needed and appreciated by me.” Elizabeth J. Peterson, Nordstjernan reader, USA
