"The Lady with the Crown" is a book for all time. It's not just for people facing difficult situations caring for a family member. It's about how we show up for whatever challenges life throws our way. Author Kay Canrinus recently gave a moving presentation on her book to a packed audience at Ada's Cafe. If you see notice of a chance to hear her in person, don't miss it.
Besides bookstores, the book is also available in our public libraries in Palo Alto and Los Altos. It has been a very popular read with local book clubs.
