My Journey: Falling down, getting up, starting over
A Memoir of My Journey to Start Over Again
Julia tells a powerful story as she invites you into her world of growing up in New Zealand where she bridges a gap between the first generation Scottish immigrants and the true nature of survival as the country defined itself with a strong national pride and cultural stability. She describes vividly the impact of her Mother’s illness on the family which resulted in boarding school modeled after the rugged standards set in many commonwealth countries. Her marriage took her on a seven week voyage across the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans - not a cruise but a working merchant ship. After a four year period of living in Montreal, Canada, work opportunities brought the family to Albany NY. As you join Julia in the rest of her story you will see how she deals with change and losses as a foundation for growth and self actualization.
