HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS

Author: M. Laurel Buck

Synopsis: Home is Where the Heart Is is the latest book in a series of memories in which Laurel Buck explores the experience of homelessness and home-building. It is one thing to construct a house, but how does one create a home? In exploring this question, the memoirs offer the precious, timeless things I learned from my parents, Laurel and John Buck, through themes at once both personal and universal. The same energy my parents committed to finding family in Ireland, they put into reaching out to their community wherever they lived. If home is where the heart is, then my parents poured their hearts into their community so that their house was not only their home, but a place of refuge for all who visited and found themselves at home. In moving across Quebec and then to Calgary in mid-life, and in visits to Ireland, my parents pursued a passion for community. Along the way, they learned to be architects of home-building. This is the story, among other treasures, you will find in Laurel’s memoirs.  –Tom Buck.
