Avola author Eleanor Deckert has produced her second book, which engages the reader with glimpses into her family of origin, and the family she raised.

“10 Days in January”  answers questions readers have requested after reading her first book, “10 Days in December.”

How long did you live in the cabin? When where and why did you move? Tell us about your children? How did you manage homeschooling? Did your marriage survive the extremes of your lifestyle.”

“December” was about Isolation. “January” is about Identity, Deckert says.

All this and more is found in the 350 page memoir.

“It is so personal, I considered ordering only one copy!” Deckert explains. “Maybe I wrote this just for me? But then I thought, ‘Other women have experienced both bright and dark episodes within family relationships.’ So I had a choice: Speaking? Silence? I decided to speak.”

“Readers experience effective writing which is colourful, personal, emotional and frank. Deckert demonstrates her gift for detail, is dedicated to transparency, and satisfies the readers curiosity with her warm, descriptive style,” said the editor at Friesen Press.
