REBECCA PARKINSON has been walking Nantucket’s unspoiled beaches, hidden salt marshes and overgrown dirt tracks that wind through the moors since her childhood. Birding and wild flower hunting, writing and painting, her summer days were spun of the clear water and blue skies of Great Point and picnics in the middle moors. Like a seed blown in on the ocean winds, she relates how the solace and natural beauty of this island have made it her sanctuary and spiritual home. An award winning communicator, Rebecca has now turned from her corporate life to writing about what she loves the most--the Lord God and Nantucket Island. KAY WITHINGTON is an accomplished watercolor artist who has painted the island scenes while walking these paths with the author. Her paintings reflect a freedom of style amidst a variety of landscapes and a brush that can create a still life of some of nature’s tiniest jewels.
