The City Far from Home

They are leaving home for many reasons - holiday-makers and honeymooners, missionaries, young people working overseas, the sick and the elderly forced from their homes by increasing dependence. Their destinations are varied; cruise ships, international hotels, colourful Pacific ports, drab institutions.  Alone, they must take their personal crises to the inner city of the self, and their paths lead through self-discovery to acceptance and peace.

Is That Love?

The reader meets hopeful lovers in many guises.  Some love passionately or hopelessly while others follow the quiet path of duty and long term commitment.  Not all can win the prize, but they may earn a glimpse of understanding that will stay with them forever.
