June Peacock began to write in earnest at the age of 89. Two years later, having spent more hours at her desk than can be counted, this memoir is complete. It was to be for her family, and will be treasured by each. However, it reaches beyond simple life experiences to be shared with family into the depths of struggle, reinvention, and joy that speak to the resilience of the human spirit.
For all who read this, there is an honesty that will encourage each of us to seek a full and meaningful life, to welcome and accept new challenges of creativity and reflection, to look forward to the future, no matter our age.
During the late fall and winter months, June lives next door to her daughter and son-in-law in Raleigh, NC. Spring, summer, and early fall she spends in the mountains, at her beloved “Cove” in western North Carolina.
