This Life Is in Your Hands

ebook

"Lyrical and down-to-earth, wry and heartbreaking, This Life Is in Your Hands is a fascinating and powerful memoir. Melissa Coleman doesn't just tell the story of her family's brave experiment and private tragedy; she brings to life an important and underappreciated chapter of our recent history." —Tom Perrotta

In a work of power and beauty reminiscent of Tobias Wolff, Jeannette Walls, and Dave Eggers, Melissa Coleman delivers a luminous, evocative childhood memoir exploring the hope and struggle behind her family's search for a sustainable lifestyle. With echoes of The Liars' Club and Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight, Coleman's searing chronicle tells the true story of her upbringing on communes and sustainable farms along the rugged Maine coastline in the 1970's, embedded within a moving, personal quest for truth that her experiences produced.
