Item description for Rooms Where I Live by Wade J. Henry Leane R. Austin...
WOMEN / RELATIONSHIPS / ESSAYS. As daughter, mother, wife and lover, author LeAne Austin searches her innermost soul to pull out the loneliness and heartaches, the joy and laughter, the pain and tears that wander through a woman's life.
With musical rhythm and symbolism, the writer roams from room to room , in her heart, looking and feeling her way: "I can hear the quiet footsteps, as she drifts from attic room to attic room. Is she looking for something? . . . she gently makes her home in my heart, and in the attic of my mind. I believe in Angels." Through her lifetime struggles as a child and woman, LeAne finally finds some peace . . . at last.
12 illustrations credited to the author, George Daniels, and Wade J. Henry. Cover photos by Patrick Schilling.

A good book. Jun 15, 2004
It is a good book because LeAne worked hard on it. I know this because I know her; she spent a long time working on it, and it turned out pretty good. I have read parts of her book and they are really good. She is my mom - I am very proud of her.
A Book Everyone Can Relate To Jun 15, 2004
LeAne writes in an easy flowing style with lots of metaphors and word pictures that makes reading her book very enjoyable and easy to read. I thoroughly enjoyed this book because her use of word pictures allowed me to picture the message she was trying to convey. I could relate to a few stories in the book, particularly the one entitled "I Miss Him". I know that all couples can relate to the feelings of this story and can relate to how easy it is to take a loved one for granted until it is too late. I looked at my relationship with my husband differently after reading this story and appreciate him so much more. Any parent can relate to the story "My Sons". This book is a book in which the author made herself vulnerable and exposed a part of herself which many of us would prefer to keep hidden. Her gift of herself and the way she so beautifully expresses her experiences and feelings allows the reader to feel like someone else can relate to anything they may have experienced in their own life. The book is easy to read, difficult to put down and thoroughly enjoyable. I recommend it highly!

A Hidden Gem of a Book Apr 28, 2004
"Rooms Where I Live" is quite a beautiful little book. Reading it, one does move through the different rooms of the author's life, and shares the whole range of her emotions and experiences. The writing style is quite lovely and lyrical, moving between prose and poetry and song, and connects with the reader's imagination to paint the scene in one's mind.
The author, LeAne Austin, does what all good writers do. She takes her personal experiences and makes them yours. She takes her unique perspectivesand makes them universal. I'm sure everyone that reads this will find passages that they can relate to, that will bring back a cherished happy memory, or bring light and healing to an unhappy one.
She speaks from her heart, and will speak to yours. Give your self a gift, and make a space for this book on your shelf. You will find yourself returning to it again and again.
