Common sense reasoning combines with soothing images of a variety of roses to create a direct yet peaceful thought-book. In 120 pages and a similar number of photographs and passages, this compilation is meant to encourage self-reliance and confidence and to encourage motivation for more effective living.
Ann Parks McCray lives and works in Wilmington, North Carolina, where she enjoys ocean, rivers, trees, lakes, water birds, blooming flowers--everything Mother Nature has to offer. Nature is often the focus of her paintings, poetry, and photography--and so, of her books. Her work is designed to inspire, calm, and restore. McCray in her own words: "We all tiptoe along a delicate path as we attempt further self-definition through self-expression. Thank you for marking this trail with me."
