About this title

Synopsis:

This hardcover edition is from the author's personal stock with each book signed by Gail Fraser on the title page!
     
There is a beautiful ease and extraordinary uniqueness to the rhythm of everyday life. Finding Happiness in Simplicity opens a window into this world and provides a path to a more purpose-driven existence, one that is filled with all the things worth having--friends and neighbors, love and faith, curiosity and passion. Here we may discover that happiness is not born of overindulgence, and that more is not better than less, nor is fast better than slow.
      
Life often passes by in such a flurry that we seldom see the joys offered to us each day. But when we take the time to stroll along a country road, or plant a row of seeds, or listen to the morning song of crickets, our lives can become infinitely richer.
       
Spring's bare earth gives way to summer's abundance, and nature lavishes us with gifts at no cost. And as the leaves begin to fall and the days get cooler, it is time to honor friends and family with celebrations that revel in the smells, sights, and sounds of the season. When winter comes, we can anticipate the promise of joy and delight in the new year as we sit by the fire with our loved ones. It is that path of gentle living that will gracefully shape our lives and lead us to a more authentic happiness.
       
Combining the reassuring words of author Gail Fraser (author of the Lumby series) and the extraordinary art of internationally-acclaimed folk artist Art Poulin, Finding Happiness in Simplicity offers a deeply compelling message that we need only look at the smallest parts of happiness to bring us closer to a more fulfilling life.

Store Description

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
