Author Julie McCulloch Burton has an amazing zest for life, love, and laughter. In Pen to Paper, she shares that zeal through a diverse compilation of anecdotes, humorous stories, family recipes, and personal photographs.
In this, Burton's second book, she provides unique insight into everyday situations and covers an array of topics, from her home and married life, her battle with multiple sclerosis, and her adventures at the veteran's hospital. The stories hail from a woman who has led an eclectic life: she learned to use chopsticks in Hong Kong: she bought a sapphire and diamond ring in Singapore; she walked through a sand storm in Saudi Arabia; and she taught deaf children how to ride and jump horses.
Intimate, funny, cutting, and sometimes painful, the stories in Pen to Paper inform, entertain, and enlighten. The narratives illustrate that Burton has lived a long life, but that she has not yet lived a lifetime.
