What folks are saying about Carol "A Woman's Way":

“Human technology enables us to explore and exploit areas of the planet. But they are often intrusive and destructive. We have to learn to temper our impulse to seek novelty, wealth and fun at the expense of our environment and wilderness. Whether it’s scuba diving, dune buggies or snowmobiles, we have to keep things in their place.” David Suzuki

Kathy Ashby has brought us a page-turner in her first novel. We see one woman’s battle for all she holds dear—her husband, her son, her land and her own inner peace. Carol ‘A Woman’s Way’ takes the reader on a journey through many emotional heights and depths as a woman finds her strengths and weaknesses and walks through them with passionate resolve.” Judith Lawrence author of Prayer Companion: A Treasury of Personal Meditation, Path Books an imprint of ABC Publishing, © 2001.

“The book, Carol ‘A Woman’s Way’ is a very important fictional account of the activity of women to preserve the environment. Indeed most successful movements have been and are started by women.” Dr. Helen Caldicott

She first publicly demonstrated the art of blowing glass at the Toronto, Harbourfront Craft Studios' inaugural year of 1974.
