Read  Excerpt


North With The Spring is drawn from a family journal kept by Mom and Dad—Phaedra and Jim—and their son and daughter, Brian, age thirteen, and Sara, age ten. It’ s a lively, candid tale as they fly from New York to Madrid in January of 1985, take a train to Genoa and then a ferry to Palermo. The plan is to hang in Sicily for a month or two, then wander north with the spring, enjoying the delights of primavera over and over as they explore Italy, Interlaken, Paris, London and parts of Scotland.

Every day is an adventure–or misadventure–but in the end they agree there were more highs than lows. In spite family arguments and pouts, pickpockets, lost children and misdirections, they enjoy sensual afternoons by the sea, some of the most inspired art and architecture in the world, and the freedom to explore something new every day. During their five months in Europe they encounter street beggars, gypsies and artists, wander through famous cathedrals and museums, climb to the top of many windy towers, and devour delicious pizza, pastries and gelato as they revel in the delights of Europe. They also discover things that were never mentioned in the guidebook such as stand-up toilets and hedgehog crossings.

As author May Sarton said, "Life is an adventure–or it's nothing!"
