a breath of fresh air 25 Oct 2002
By Kimmy - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Reading Jill Frayne's book "Starting Out in the Afternoon" took me away on a vacation of the senses, her beautiful descriptions of the natural landscape of Canada inviting me to journey with her.
she also got me thinking about what is truly important in life, esecially our 24/7 hectic lifestyles that we lead. Pairing her life down to first only what she can cary in her car, and then in a back-pack, camping in the open, alone, dealing with her fears and mis-givings, she opens the reader up to a journey filled with untapped posibility and spiritual growth.
I admire her tenacity and sense of adventure, her words still echoing in my head.
I'm planning on seeing more of Canada since reading her work.

Major Life Change Written in Low Key Style 26 Dec 2002
By I. Miller - Published on
Format: Hardcover
It was the picture on the front cover and then the title that made me want to buy and read this book. It was the beautifully descriptive turns-of-phrases that makes me want to read it again a second time...right away. This time slowly, to saveur her love story with nature in the style of Annie Dillard's "Pilgrim at Tinker Creek". One of the most evocative, moving and intelligent books I have read this year...and I read a lot of books. Read this book!
