What does it take to achieve a life’s goal, to follow a precious dream through to reality? Money? Influential connections? Knowledge or skills? In the spring of 1983, Terry Faubert hadn’t much of those as she set out to move to the country with her young son, her cat, and little else. Longing to raise her five-year-old in tune with nature, she planned somehow to make a life for them out in the forest. She would need to find land that she could purchase with her scant savings and to build a house they could live in. She had never built anything before and had no idea how to go about it. Small and slight, naive and inexperienced, Terry had little awareness that spring day of the hurdles and challenges ahead. This is her story—a story of determination and perseverance, of improbable ideas and unlikely successes.-----"...a free spirit with sheer determination. It reflects the way of that era. It is a delightful story, lots of warm-heartedness, some humour and beautiful descriptions of (Terry’s) surroundings.”—Winnie Ferrier, Powell River, B.C. -----"I would recommend to others to read. It’s a charming tale with highs and lows along the way and it is real life not fiction.”—Diane Fraser, Newcastle, U.K. -----"I really enjoyed reading (The Way Home). I think it’s very well written and it kept my interest right through. I really applaud (Terry’s) skill and determination...building a house wouldn’t be within the remit of many women—me included!”—Carol Jones, Norwich, U.K. -----"...a good storyteller and lots of life experiences...inspiring...very well written and flows through time in a logical and pleasant fashion. (Terry’s) life changes, son’s growth and house construction are all woven together masterfully.”—Margy Lutz, consultant, Powell River, B.C.

Bought for jemlire who won my little game on the French forum and had it on her wishlist. I never would have read it otherwise, I'm glad I did. I loved it. Thank you jemlire !
