Praise for A Wise Old Girl’s Own Almanac:
“Fine in the way of old tapestries, aged wine and deep friendships. Joyce Harries has rendered a book that illuminates the vagaries of ordinary life with grace and truth.”
Margaret Macpherson, Author Of “Body Trade”, Northwords Prize Winner, 2012
“From her crystal memories of childhood to the humorous vagaries of old age, Joyce Harries finds the unique in the everyday. With the touch of a poet and the eye of a storyteller, Joyce invites the reader to an odyssey of lives lived with exuberance.”
