Our Lingering Farewell is a story deeply rooted in selfless devotion and the best of humanity. I am often humbled by the work we do at I C Publishing and that could not be truer partnering with a wise, experienced, and thoughtful individual such as Dr. Allan Carswell. Bringing Helen Carswell’s twenty-year journey with Alzheimer’s disease to the pages of this poignant narrative has been an honour. Allan had three noble goals to achieve: acknowledge Helen’s beautiful, vibrant spirit and generosity throughout her entire lifetime, encourage others on this challenging path, and continue to raise awareness and actively support the Toronto Memory Program and Alzheimer Societies of Toronto and York Region.
It’s a sacred opportunity to rest, to connect more deeply to life, to ourselves and others, and to be an example to our loved ones including children of all ages, and to our community. Partnering with Hospice Georgina, we are giving away two of our beautiful e-books in the Hearts Linked by Courage collection. Our goal with this book series is to provide hope and encouragement through all the brave stories shared… It’s time now more than ever, to use our words, thoughts, and deeds for good. Words can inspire, build confidence, and even exude the warmth of an embrace. Let’s pass it on and pay it forward.
Empress and the Prairie Girl is a thoughtful little story perfect for our time. Not only does it eloquently address a universal experience most parents endure at some point, it also includes the underlying emotion that accompanies it . . . that of our children growing up far too quickly before our eyes. Author and composer, Cameron Austin, has created a beautiful relationship between Empress and the Prairie Girl, and with each turn of a page invites us to travel along their path in life with great sensitivity.
