Life with Dick portrays one couple’s relationship - how they met, married had children, and have lived their lives together for almost fifty years. The author writes of the highs and lows in life, sometimes with a sense of the absurd.
Jan, a farmer’s daughter, is determined to reinvent herself. She meets Dick, a gentleman from London, England. It is an unlikely match from the beginning, but this book recounts how they use their incompatibility to create an unconventional life together.
This book is an entertaining look at the realistic ways in which we all can stay engaged, continue to be loving and kind to those we influence – our unsuspecting children, friends, and families.
Jan believes that we will become our stories, and warns us to be careful of the stories we tell about ourselves and our lives. Events can be tragic or they can be opportunities to learn important lessons. The same event can be a victim story and another version about the triumph of a life experience.
Jan lives in Verona, Ontario, with her husband Dick. They have two married children and four grandchildren.
She will be reading from Life With Dick – Unintentional lessons we gave our unsuspecting children at Indigo Books in Kingston from 1pm-3pm on November 22nd. The book will have its official launch on November 24 at The Seniors Centre on Francis Street in Kingston on November 24 from 1:30pm - 3:30pm. It will be available locally at Nicole’s Gifts in Verona
