Very Much a Woman’s Book

Very Much a Woman’s Book is celebrating its 25th anniversary. It is a collection of poetry and drawings—it’s my way of sharing my life’s experiences over a period of thirty years. Before publication, the collection was a gift to a special friend, I’ve rolled it up and tied it with a red ribbon. She, in turn, insisted that I publish what she called “every woman’s feelings.”

With trepidation at exposing myself, I did so, only to find that 30,000 readers agreed. One reader wrote, “The simplicity with which Peggy expresses the complexities of our hearts is a divine gift.”

Gathering Peace

There is not a single one of us on the face of the earth who doesn’t want a peaceful life.

In GATHERING PEACE, eleven-year-old Zoey tweaks our imagination as she takes us on an inspiring search for the meaning of peace.

Zoey’s father quits his lucrative job, takes her mother, two brothers, and two dogs from their comfy home, packs them into a 32-foot trailer and sets off across the country in search of himself and a new career idea. His travel vision is one of babbling brooks and tranquil hillsides, perfect for contemplation and internal exploration.

Once on the road, parking rules dictate that oversized trailers be confined to campgrounds–usually overloaded with tourists of varying shapes, sizes and voluminous distraction–a condition that causes Zoey’s father to constantly holler, “All I want is peace and quiet,” one occurrence accompanied by tears.

In order to provide some solace for her father, and tranquility to the disrupted adventure, Zoey feels compelled to find a way to give her dad the peace and quiet he wants. She understands ‘quiet’, but is confused by the meaning of ‘peace’. She decides to go on a search for what it is so she can give it to her dad for his birthday.
A cast of diverse characters in the various campgrounds share with Zoey their understanding of peace, ranging from titillating to tantalizing, and even traumatic.

The gift she presents to her father becomes not only surprising, but truly touching.

The journey into the soul of this book begins with a child searching for the perfect gift to give to her father. We soon discover that this is the yearning of the “child” in each of us: to give the perfect gift … to ourselves, and to others. How shall we give what we value most, not just once, but moment by moment? It’s a treasure worth sharing!

Peggy Warren has created a tender, heart-warming, poignant book for the young reader, as well as a light-hearted, entertaining read for any age-with an empowering message for parents to evaluate the precious moments with their family.

- Alexandra Delis-Abrams Phd, author of Attitudes, Beliefs and Choices

Peggy Warren has accomplished one of fiction’s most delicate high-wire acts: writing in the voice of a child, for adults. The innocence of childhood is deftly evoked in a bold girl’s search for the hardest kind of gift for her father, peace and quiet and a changed life to boot. A gallery of fascinating characters each offers some truth in young Zoey’s journey and, by book’s end, we understand that, without even realizing it, our lives have changed too.
