Not yet rated | write a review
As they neared retirement, Greg Brown and his wife Anne gave up their life in the U.S. to settle on a windswept Nova Scotia island inhabited by wild sheep and deer, where harbour seals sing in the fog and an old lighthouse still keeps watch over the North Atlantic. Island Year: Finding Nova Scotia tells the story of the surprises, challenges and discoveries of their first year alone on an island as they restored an old fisherman''s house, explored the island, and began to learn how to live a Nova Scotia way of life.

This is a story for anyone who dreams of exchanging a fast-paced, high-tech life for something slower and just maybe more meaningful. This is a story about the night sky and the dawn chorus, lobsters and wild raspberries, a famous pirate, the kindness of others, and getting in touch with yourself again. Funny and inspiring, this book redefines what a rich life can mean.

About the Author

two year residence in West Berlin, Germany, where he worked with German conscientious objectors, he settled in Washington, DC and became an ordained United Methodist Minister. After his twenty year career in pastoral ministry, he moved into the field of counselling. Later, he began a coaching practice with clergy and small business executives, and developed an interest in the restoration of historic houses. This interest in historic preservation, together with his love of the sea and his Nova Scotian roots (his grandfather was born and raised in Pugwash), prompted a life changing departure from the United States to McNutt''s Island in southwestern Nova Scotia where he lives with his wife.
