    1. What a special book, and I’m so glad I discovered it thanks to the author’s reading at my local library. Her spoken words brought tears to my eyes as I listened to them and I knew I’d have to read this book. What I appreciated most was how she reflected on the lives of her parents in such a touching way.


    2. The backstory to this memoir is both a celebration of life and the grief that inevitably accompanies it. There's an imaginative inner world that Deborah Joy Corey creates based on her willingness to let her mind linger in its ideas and inspirations. The most vivid scenes -- such as a magical ride on a pony -- involve nature and an immutable sense that the circle of life is always at play. Corey's story is set mostly in Maine and in her native Canada -- both of which have a Wild West quality when [...]


    3. If every memoir was written as deeply and as thoughtfully as this one, memoirs would always be in the top ten on the NYTimes bestsellers list.


    4. Memoir is my favorite genre. I was thrilled to find this one and and three others in a bookstore in Stockton, Mass on our way home from our annual trip to a regatta in Maine The book is structured in three parts; events remembered as a child, the same events and more remembered as an adult, and finally reflection on her whole life . at first I was annoyed at the excessive metaphors but reading that her mother spoke in Metaphors and encouraged to her son to speak in them as well I relaxed and enj [...]


    5. Couldn't finish it. I got about half-way through and quit, disappointed that the book was not what I thought it was going to be: memoirs of growing up in New Brunswick and then settling in Maine. Instead, it is a Hallmark view of life in which every little memory, thought, observance, smell, touch, sight, seashell, and boat becomes a metaphor for life, death and the pursuit of happiness. Which isn't hard to come by when you're married to Bill Zildjian of Zildjian/Sabian cymbal fame. At first, I [...]


    6. I would love to sit down with Deborah Joy Cory for a cup of tea and have her tell me her stories but a whole book of her stories is too much. I could not finish "Settling Twice: Lessons From Then and Now", it was just too sweet and mundane.
