The Heart of It All is a tender story hidden in poetry, prose and picturs. It spells out the joys and sorrows of everyday living using the landscapes of the natural wold as a setting. From "The Changing Shore" (where "all is tattered and shattered") to a place where "new treasures await discovery," this book travels the path to where morning is reborn--from London to Cologne to Appalachia through lyrical language, metaphor, and sensory engagement. The text is highlighted with her personal photographs.
The book is divided into ten sections: Lessons of the Sea, Scenic Solitude, On Love, A Fairy Tale, Seasons of Change, Discovry, Remembering, The Heart of It All, Our Best Friends, Wrapping Up Loose Ends.
Lori has included personal photographs of water scenes, flowers, mushrooms, an angel, an eagle, and the mountains.
