Product Description

Product Description

A writer, weaving fantasies about the daughter she relinquished for adoption thirty-one years ago, faces a starkly different reality when the young woman suddenly re-enters her life – an event that re-opens old wounds for them both but launches them, and several others, on an unexpected journey of emotional risk-taking, healing and love. Set in England, Australia and southern Italy.

More About the Author

Born in England in 1936, Marian spent many years of her life living in other places. She brought up her children in Australia and later went to California to pursue graduate studies.In 1996, she retired from her professional career as a psychotherapist and workshop leader in order to concentrate on her writing. And in 1998 she returned to her native England. As a free-lance writer, Marian has publishing credits in many subjects, from mind/body/spirit and women's issues to environmental politics, organic growing and alternative technology.

Marian's first non-fiction book was "Transformation through Menopause" (Bergin & Garvey,1991). This was the first self-help guide to the psychological, emotional and spiritual aspects of menopause and is still claimed by many to be the best book on menopause ever written. Her second book "ELDERWOMAN: reap the wisdom, feel the power, embrace the joy" (Findhorn Press, 2002) follows on from that. It is a comprehensive guide to the crowning/croning phase of women's lives, the years from menopause onwards.

With a passionate interest--and considerable personal experience--in simplicity and sustainable living, Marian published "The Lilypad List: Seven steps to the simple life" (also through Findhorn Press) in 2004. In 2009 she published (through Booklocker) her first novel "The Bird Menders," which is now also available in a Kindle edition as well as in paperback. In 2010 she edited the definitive book on green spirituality "GreenSpirit: Path to a New Consciousness"(O Books). Following that, she authored two books in the 'Made Easy' series for John Hunt Publishing. The first of these was another book on the theme of living simply entitled "Downshifting Made Easy: how to plan for your planet-friendly future." The second, which drew on the experience and expertise of Marian's years as a psychotherapist, is a self-help book called "Self-Therapy Made Easy" (Psyche Books, 2012)

Marian is currently co-ordinating the production of a new ebook series for the GreenSpirit organization. The first title in this series - "What is Green Spirituality" -is now available on Kindle and there will be others following soon.

Marian has also contributed to several anthologies, including both the Chicken Soup and Cup of Comfort series.

One of her short stories ("Waiting a While for Greeneyes") was published as a Leaf mini-book and she self-published a short story collection through Lulu.com in 2006 under the title "Apricot Harvest."

She is also a book reviewer and for several years wrote the "Books in Brief" section of Resurgence magazine. She is co-editor of the "GreenSpirit Journal" and a columnist for Crone magazine, in the USA. She edits the quarterly "Elderwoman Newsletter" e-zine and has created (and maintains) several websites, an online social network for 'elderwomen' and also a blog.

5.0 out of 5 stars An endearing story of life, love, loss, healing and coming home 15 Jun 2013
By G. Polley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Marian Van Eyk McCain's "The Bird Menders" is a book I could not put down once I began reading it. Some would say this is "a woman's book", but I don't agree. It's a story about women and the challenges life brings, about love, loss, sexual abuse and, ultimately, healing. In short, it's a book for everyone. it's also a book that I would recommend to women (and men) who have been (or are being) sexually abused. This is definitely a book that I will read again.
