The Candle's Shadow by Catharine Cool

Although the relationship I had with my beautiful and enigmatic mother was always troubling, with age I discovered how rich and unusual were the gifts she offered in place of motherly love.

About the Author

Born in Malacca, Malaya and educated in Australia, I went on to graduate studies in London where I married an American anthropologist who took me to the South Pacific. As a Foreign Service wife, living in posts throughout South Asia, I reared three children, taught high school and grew as a writer, poet and artist. Since retiring to Virginia, I have continued painting and writing. This, my third memoir, describes my unusual Asian-Australian childhood and how it influenced both my mother and myself.
