A-Day-in-the-Life. That is my sub-title for this sincere memoir. It chronicles Johnson’s yearlong sabbatical living with his wife and eight-year-old daughter in a 17th century stone cottage in Scotland. The consistent lighthouse beacon and the water and waves permeate their lives. The village culture eventually seeps in. Johnson has come here to write and honor the life and death of his beloved mother. His wife finds friends and meaningful volunteer work in the village, and their daughter is enrolled in school.
If you happen to live on Lake Superior in Marquette, Michigan the home-town aspects ring especially true. Even if you call elsewhere home you may recognize many of these words and feelings as your own. Raising a child, caring for a dying parent, sustaining meaningful work, finding family-these are the actions that make a life. This memoir is steeped in grief and elevated by wonder. ~Dianne
