This is a wonderful book made up of quiet, insightful essays. Exploring home as a place where we live is only Deborah Stewart’s starting point. She goes beyond the physical to the philosophical understanding of home as that special place where we find family, friends, respite and those myriad experiences that make our lives whole. Home is that focal point in our lives through which Stewart traces family origins, the meaning of togetherness, quandaries, wonder and loss. The essays are laced with careful detail and densely woven of moments that transcend daily routine. They describe meaningful interpersonal relationships that permeate the essence of each of us. Each essay stands on its own like a meditation. Each one will provide the reader with a quiet satisfaction. The ultimate gift this book provides is an understanding of the true meaning of home.

Where the Heart Is
This exquisite little book is a wonderful rendering of life's rhythms, its changes and constants and themes of holding on and letting go. The photography, as much as the prose, is enchanting and deeply moving.
