The Gift of Peaks and Valleys is a portrait unmatched for its clarity and candor, its wisdom, liveliness and breadth of experience. Carolyn Kirk-Likou's biography is above all the portrait of a real person a look at the perfection of a woman who talks openly about her own imperfections. The history her story gives us is history as she has seen and lived it not in the round, but directly, with the clear and candid memory she brought to every interview. Carolyn defies complacency. She was able to reach for and grab hold of her dreams. That in itself is remarkable. But more remarkable still is that she did it for the good of others, including the three children, now adults, that she raised almost as a single parent. Along the way, she found a source of courage within herself she never knew existed. Through that discovery, she inspires us all to speak and live from the heart. But do not mistake Carolyn for some superwoman whose success came easily. She's just like us: a person who lived an ordinary life until circumstances demanded a heightened moral strength and the courage to imagine an otherwise. Carolyn made it through, not merely intact, but stronger and smarter for the experience, and wiser for the recognition of how she triumphed.
