Category: Biography & Autobiography
Born in the midst of the London Blitz in 1940, Cynthia Redfern came of age in post-war Britain. Here she learned the value of independence, hard work, friendship, and family. They would all contribute to each season of her life. Full of vivid detail, "Seasons of the Soul" shares Cynthia's unusual life story. Even though the road was often rocky and some seasons offered more challenges than others, Cynthia's determination to keep her integrity intact saw her through. In an easy, conversational style, she relates her childhood years, remembering her grandfather, the boy she befriended at age six (a friendship that lasted sixty-four years), and the house she lived in for nearly twenty years. With unflinching candor, Cynthia describes her loss of innocence as she was sexually abused for three years by a much older boy, a tragedy that would forever affect her. She describes her life as a teenager; her travels through Europe; her early relationships; her marriage to her husband, David; and their subsequent move to Canada. As the years passed, Cynthia became a mother, a farm wife, an entrepreneur, and, eventually, a grandmother. Each season provided its share of joys and challenges, molding her into the person she is today. Inspiring and heartwarming, this memoir tells a story of courage and commitment to living the best life possible.

"June is a time when the vineyardist thins and trains shoots, which seem to grow inches a day. During thinning and training one learns intimately about the personality of the grapevine. It is a strange creature, and one can see why in ancient Greece and Rome it represented the cycles of life. The bark on the main trunk tends to be cracked and crumpled, hanging in threads in some places, and reminiscent of a withered old man. It’s not pretty to look at. But the vine comes to life in the smooth brown canes that were young growth the year before, and then in the tender, rubbery green shoots of the current season." In 1998, Gary and Rosemary Barletta purchased seven acres of land on the eastern shore of Cayuga Lake. Descending to the west from the state route that runs along on the ridge overlooking the lake, the land was fertile, rich with shalestone and limestone bedrock, and exposed to moderating air currents from the lake. It was the perfect place to establish a vineyard, and the Barlettas immediately began to plant their vines and build the winery about which they had dreamed for years. The Barlettas’ story, as John C. Hartsock tells it, is a window onto the world of contemporary craft winemaking, from the harsh realities of business plans, vineyard pests, and brutal weather to the excitement of producing the first vintage, greeting enthusiastic visitors on a vineyard tour, and winning a gold medal from the American Wine Society for a Cabernet Franc. Above all, Seasons of a Finger Lakes Winery describes the connection forged among the vintner, the vine, and terroir. This ancient bond, when tended across the cycle of seasons, results in excellent wines and the satisfaction, on the part of the winemaker and the wine enthusiast, of tasting a perfect harvest in a single glass. Today, Long Point Winery sits on seventy-two acres (eight of which are under cultivation with vinifera grapes) and produces sixteen varieties of wine, a number of which are estate wines made from grapes grown on their property. With interest in winemaking continuing to grow, the Barlettas’ experience of making award-winning wines offers both practical advice for anyone running (or thinking of running) their own winery, whether in the Finger Lakes or elsewhere, as well as insights into the challenges and joys of pursuing a dream.

Most cultures and societies around the world have their own unique methods for finding love. For instance, in Genoa, Italy, a yearly celebration commemorates the generosity of Count Fieschi of Lavagna who, in 1240, threw a party with a 30-foot cake. Townsfolk remember him with a parade and a little romance: they pin to their clothing a piece of paper--blue for men, white for women--on which a specific word is written. When they find someone wearing the same word, the couple is given a piece of cake. And the rest is up to them! This charming practice and many others can be found in Love, Luck, and Lore. In this little book of love, Theresa Hoiles and Elizabeth Carr have collected celebrations and spell rhymes, fortune-telling tricks and food charms to help you snag that guy you've seen at the local coffeehouse. Try putting a two-leaf clover in your shoe as you say this rhyme:A clover of two, put it in your right shoe. The first young man you meet, In field, street, or lane, You'll have him or one of his name. Or make an apricot love sachet by placing some dried apricots and cloves in the center of a circular piece of cloth and tying it up with ribbon long enough to wear around your neck. The tantalizing aroma should draw potential lovers your way, leaving men weak in your wake. Sure, you can try a more scientific approach to dating, following rules written by someone with a Ph.D. in Interpersonal Relations from Boring U. But that's no fun! Use these carefree and whimsical approaches, quirky prayers and incantations, to appeal to higher voices and spirits and bring that love into your life!
