Description

  • Great product!
  • The basis for the major motion picture of the same name.

    An entrancing memoir of how one woman's journey of self-discovery gave her the courage to persevere in re-creating her
    life.

    Life is a work in progress, as ever-changing as a sandy shoreline along the beach. During the years Joan Anderson was a
    loving wife and supportive mother, she had slowly and unconsciously replaced her own dreams with the needs of her
    family. With her sons grown, however, she realized that the family no longer centered on the home she provided, and her
    relationship with her husband had become stagnant. Like many women in her situation, Joan realized that she had
    neglected to nurture herself and, worse, to envision fulfilling goals for her future. As her husband received a
    wonderful job opportunity out-of-state, it seemed that the best part of her own life was finished. Shocking both of
    them, she refused to follow him to his new job and decided to retreat to a family cottage on Cape Cod.
    At first casting about for direction, Joan soon began to take pleasure in her surroundings and call on resources she
    didn't realize she had. Over the course of a year, she gradually discovered that her life as an "unfinished woman" was
    full of possibilities. Out of that magical, difficult, transformative year came A Year by the Sea, a record of her
    experiences and a treasury of wisdom for readers.
