Publisher: AuthorHouse

Binding: Hardcover

Book Condition: New

Book Type: Hardcover

Description:

Hardcover. 436 pages. Dimensions: 9.1in. x 6.2in. x 1.4in.For once, I intend now to write strictly about what I know best, my life and its circumstances. I want to tell the story of what it has been like for a middle-class American descended from Italian and German immigrants. It is the story of a girl who grew up and found her law vocation during the 50s through 70s and who happens to be blind and hard of hearing, and who now has used a series of wonderful guide dogs as traveling companions. I have referred to my life as blessed in the title, because the hand of Divine Providence has been at work since my conception in shaping me and promoting whatever goodness or success I may have attained, both directly and through the human beings in my life. The imperfections and errors that remain, which I hope to continue to remedy with His help, are the evidence that this Divine work is, as Benjamin Franklin said in his epitaph, a work in progress, being continually revised and corrected by the Divine Author. The sub-title comes from the theme of the discussion group in which I participated during my Cursillo retreat, Travelers to Emmaus. Like the two discouraged, disillusioned pilgrims who fled from Jerusalem after the death and still disbelieved resurrection of Jesus, I am still in the lifelong process of finding the Lord. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781477237045

Synopsis: For once, I intend now to write strictly about what I know best, my life and its circumstances. I want to tell the story of what it has been like for a middle-class American descended from Italian and German immigrants. It is the story of a girl who grew up and found her law vocation during the 50's through 70's and who happens to be blind and hard of hearing, and who now has used a series of wonderful guide dogs as traveling companions. I have referred to my life as blessed in the title, because the hand of Divine Providence has been at work since my conception in shaping me and promoting whatever goodness or success I may have attained, both directly and through the human beings in my life. The imperfections and errors that remain, which I hope to continue to remedy with His help, are the evidence that this Divine work is, as Benjamin Franklin said in his epitaph, a work in progress, being continually revised and corrected by the Divine Author. The sub-title comes from the theme of the discussion group in which I participated during my Cursillo retreat, Travelers to Emmaus. Like the two discouraged, disillusioned pilgrims who fled from Jerusalem after the death and still disbelieved resurrection of Jesus, I am still in the lifelong process of finding the Lord.

About the Author: Linda A. M. Schneider was born in Washington, D.C. and has lived in Arlington, Virginia all her life. She teasingly calls herself "one of the natives". After graduating from Trinity College (Michigan Avenue, Washington, D.C) with a B.A. in English literature in 1974, she received her J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center in 1977. At present, she works for the SEC as an attorney. Ms. Schneider's other published books include two fantasy novels, The Unbroken Circle and Heir to the Dragon King, as well as a science fiction novel, Diary of an Unwitting Explorer. She has compiled four short story collections: Slice of Life, A Second Helping, Cream Puffs and Other Goodies, and A Walk in the Park with Friends. Her Poetry collection is entitled The Ivory Pyramid. Her other avocations in spare time include knitting and sculpture. Ms Schneider lives in either a one or two-dog household depending on whether she has a retired guide dog. Her present working dog is a black Labrador retriever, named Teddy, with black Lab, Gemma, in retirement. If you want to know more about her, this autobiography is the rest of her story.
