Aunt Harri Walks the Line

Rated 0/5 based on 2 reviews
If you have reached the golden years, have an aging parent, or hope to grow old yourself one day, this book is for you. It packs a punch that's inspiring rather than jolting. It will help uplift the spirit in this age of anxiety and depression. The book is a romp: mellow, ironic, funny, sometimes weepy. But never boring. Most readers say, "Aunt Harri is just like Mother, or Just like Grandmother." More

About Ray Wiseman

Ray Wiseman's early memory--being pushed up a rope ladder and over the side of a tramp steamer at age two--set the tone for his life. He has spent much time travelling, and most of his life looking from the hilltop of one adventure to the beginning of the next. Born in England, Ray has lived in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario, and South Africa. He has traveled in Africa and Asia.

Ray counts writing as his fourth career. He began his working life as an electronics technician, then returned to school to study for the Christian ministry. He spent time in the pastorate and overseas with a missionary society. He returned to electronics, working as a video systems engineer. In 1993, he took early retirement to pursue a career as a writer and speaker.

Ray graduated from Radio College of Canada (now RCC Schools) in 1952. He has a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Waterloo and a Bachelor of General and Biblical Studies from Briercrest College. He has also studied at the Toronto Institute of Linguistics and The International Institute of Christian Communications (Daystar University College) in Nairobi.

Ray is a member of The Word Guild, an association of Canadian authors and writers who are Christian.

Review by: Kimberley Payne on April 04, 2012 : (no rating)
Aunt Harri is a collection of stories about an elderly woman that Ray Wiseman, a retired writer, originally wrote as a newspaper column. Aunt Harri deals with such aging issues as giving up a driver’s licence and choosing a retirement home with humour, faith and insight. Wiseman delights the reader with his irony and humour. A great read!

Aunt Harri is a humorous look at the circumstances of the elderly person. I laughed and I cried while reading this book.
