Robert and Mary Rowe’s second child, Christopher, was born with severe neurological and visual impairments. For many years, the Rowes’ courageous response to adversity set an example for a group of Brooklyn mothers who met to discuss the challenges of raising children with birth defects. Then Bob Rowe’s pressures — professional and personal — took their toll, and he fell into depression and, ultimately delusion. And one day he took a baseball bat and killed his three children and his wife. In Facing the Wind, Julie Salamon not only tells the Rowes’ tragic story but also explores the lives of others drawn into it: the mothers, a social worker with problems of her own, an ocularist — that is, a man who makes prosthetic eyes — a young woman who enters the novitiate out of shame over her childhood sexual activities, and a judge of unusual wisdom. Facing the Wind is a work of redemptive compassion and understanding. It addresses the questions of how human beings cope with the burdens that chance inflicts upon them and what constitutes moral and legal guilt and innocence.

Facing the Wind 2: African Storm picks up the story of Julia and Hyrum Prince where we left them in Facing the Wind: Brentwood Hall. The story follows them as they travel from England to Africa where they start a new life together. Facing the Wind 2: African Storm masterfully weaves the Princes and African history into a story of life, love and loss that will immerse you into the lives of African kings, slaves and English immigrants! This novel stands completely on its own, but those who have read Facing the Wind: Brentwood Hall will enjoy following the Princes to Africa. Leaving her beloved England and Queen behind, Julia follows the dream of her husband as he seeks a better life for his family. But better doesn't equate to easier or safer. You'll thrill at their triumphs and cry with them at their losses. Facing the Wind: Brentwood Hall and Facing the Wind 2: African Storm were inspired by the lives of real people and events. Novels by EH Lorenzo also include The Remembered. EH Lorenzo has an interest in history and is facinated by the lives of 'ordinary people'.

This book was designed to help those whom are unable to move past their mistakes, or as I like to rephrase them, as "life experiences." Life experiences are those moments in life where maybe we took a wrong turn, or should have chosen option B instead of A, but we came out with a newfound experience, having moved past the ordeal. This journal helps other refocus their thoughts, while also incorporating positivity and some important steps to help move past the learning experiences. Studies reveal it takes an average of 66-days to make a new change or change an old habit. There is exactly sixty-six therapeutic workbook pages designed to help you make the positive changes you desire.
