This book began as a therapeutic exercise after the death of the author's daughter. Some years the manuscript was expanded into a book and published to help parents of children with anxiety disorders recognize what is happening when a child's behaviour changes and to let them know that they are not alone. After a long career as an advertising copywriter, developer/designer of business communications materials and researcher/editor/ghostwriter of a number of small press non-fiction books, Jean Jardine Miller is now concentrating on writing her own novels, featuring Canadian families and the challenges they face in life. A consistently increasing audience is enjoying the first three, "Fate and Angus McGrath", "Daffodil Dancing" and The Family History" and she has recently published "From Ragged London to the Garden of Eden" which follows the lives of a young brother and sister brought to Canada from the East End of London as child immigrants in nineteenth century. Jean lives in Shelburne, a small Ontario town, where she runs the SPCA thrift store, is active in community theatre and hikes regularly on the nearby Niagara Escarpment, staying busy to keep painful memories at bay.
