THE SECOND JOURNEY The Road Back to Yourself

by | Read by Pam Ward

Personal Growth • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

This sensitive, introspective memoir continues Joan Anderson's previously chronicled search for a meaningful, authentic life. Overcommitted, coping with an aging parent and far-flung children, in search of integration and wholeness, she journeys to Iona, Scotland, where unexpected coincidences and insights abound, giving this pilgrimage the feel of an archetypal quest. Initially, narrator Pam Ward's tone is strident and didactic, almost annoying. However, as the story unfolds, her tone eases and mirrors the transformation of the main character, who becomes more thoughtful as she attempts to find peace and equilibrium. Ward’s performance should find many appreciative listeners, especially among Anderson's devoted readers. This is the kind of production that could be listened to every year, when one needs a reminder to slow down and enjoy the journey.
