About the Book

Echoes of the Moon

Life deals Kathryn Clark some difficult challenges as she finds herself on a quest for healing and wholeness. The journey takes her on a detour through the Mediterranean to Greece and Rome in her search for meaning and hope for herself and her family.

This nine-year chronicle brings rich moments of self-awareness, and reflects the power of love experienced through the lenses of history and timeless spirituality.

Readers will make their own discoveries as they witness Clark's transformation as she welcomes the connections to her love of Greek history and finds comfort in the old ways of Apollo, the god of healing and prophecy.

The author confronts the challenges of serious illness and end-of-life issues, first with her beloved father who is suffering from a brain tumor, and soon after with her life-partner husband whose life is cut short by malignant melanoma. She records the physical and emotional changes as her family members deal with impending death. Her inner dialog reveals how she continues to cope, to hope, and to overcome obstacles with persistence.

Several threads weave their way through the book. She finds herself back in the work force after ten years as a stay-at-home mom. She deals with the demands of her boss, the coming of age of her three teens and the loss of her life partner all at the same time. We experience her bewilderment as she tells us what she is thinking.

Along the way, she connects with two women who share the same difficult path when their husbands die, and together they navigate the uncertain waters of young widowhood, forging a deep, unspoken bond. These friendships add a further dimension to the narrator’s epiphany about the universality of life and death.

Echoes of the Moon is a story of becoming. It speaks to the symbols that permeate our lives. The moon, the dolphins, the birds, the sailboats, the Greek stories all resonate with the author as she travels her spirit-filled journey of discovery. We grow along with her as she returns again and again to her touchstone of Ancient Greece and reexamines herself and her beliefs.
