I found the tales to be inspirational, deeply moving and truly of a healing nature. They seem to bring a sense of peace to the reader. Debra A. Hendron, M.Div., CASAC As recently as a few hundred years ago, we lived in close-knit communities and our lives revolved around our extended family and the changing of the seasons. Our modern life gives us many more options, but it also creates an alienation that leaves us yearning for meaning and connection. The Old Woman Tales, by Miriam Jacobs is a collection of luminous short stories set in a mythic past. As we follow the Old Woman on her travels, she helps us to explore the journey of our own life, and gives us a model to help us navigate it with wisdom, humor and grace. These tales, told with approachable simplicity, offer insights about identity, self respect, making our dreams come true, losses, aging with grace, sacrifice, honoring our calling, overcoming adverse circumstances, forgiveness, gratitude and so much more. They soothe the aching heart and celebrate and honor the resilient beauty of spirit. This book also comes with an invitation to write your own Old Woman story and share your wisdom with others on
