The Weaving of My Tartan Heart (Paperback)
This book is not available online.
The Weaving of My Tartan Heart offers a peek through the window of the author's thoughts. Vivid images of a time long past make the reader feel as though they are present in each scene. Stories of when life was simpler, and respect for elders and tradition evokes a warmth you can feel deep in your soul-like a cozy woolen blanket.
"A book of nostalgic short stories, nostalgic for how life was...and perhaps could still be...in Cape Breton. It's a delightful read by an artistically gifted person. She is a known visual artist, a seamstress, a doll-maker and a weaver, whose skills are highly valued by her community. This collection appears to be the next page in the current chapter of her life, where we find her writing with the same skill she applied to earlier arts & crafts. She is very close to the hearts of her characters in these well-told tales. Write on Donelda "
-Carole Chisholm. B.A., B.Ed., M.A., Retired English teacher from Mabou Consolidated School
"Donelda has always been a very, very creative person, a wonderful cook, and a great story teller, and this this book reminds me just how good she is "
"Anybody could do it, but only a Weaver did "
