Many of us are fast approaching the "golden years" of retirement, wondering with fear ― and hope ― what the future holds for us. And you won't find a better companion for the journey of aging than Jane Sigloh. She's witty, perceptive, and wise. A retired Episcopal priest, she is possessed of both reverent awe and irreverent honesty about the facts and fantasies of growing old. She interweaves the insights of Scripture, poetry, fiction, and philosophy into her memories and reflections on the challenges and opportunities that maturity brings. Dip into any of these chapters and find a refreshing perspective, a humorous anecdote, or an intimate confession that will ring true to your own experience.

About the Author:

Jane Sigloh is a retired Episcopal priest who lives in Crozet, Virginia.

Review:

For me, it's rare to read a work that is truly life-changing to the point that I think everyone I know should read it, but Jane Sigloh's Like Trees Walking is exactly that. Her writing is so conspicuously intimate . . . so rich with meaning and wisdom that I kept asking myself, 'Why am I only now learning about this author?' . . . A literary treasure that is uplifting and encouraging...and edifying and I think many of the people I know would be blessed to read it. (Reader Views)

[Sigloh's] short essays are at times humorous, occasionally haunting, frequently memorable but always hopeful, and it is this rare mix that makes them so readable, so enjoyable, so quotable, so commendable. (The Dallas Morning News)

It is a book to be read, savored, and given away. Each copy deserves a long life of being passed from caring friend to aging friend. . . . Each devotional essay is a well constructed composition characterized for candor, caring, and compassion. . . . By drawing from insights of scripture, poetry, fiction and philosophy, Sigloh challenges her readers to use 'the second half of life' to reinforce spiritual perspectives, to identify what really matters and look for what God is doing. Relish her insights, and then pass the book to a friend. (The Christian Librarian, Fall 2009)
