The Sharp End of Life: A Mother’s Story
Talented and courageous, Dierdre Wolownick has experienced many vocations throughout her life, but her most committed calling has been mother to her two talented children. Bound in a loveless marriage, this intrepid woman engaged her linguistic skills to teach romance languages and English as a second language, wrote journal articles, worked in real estate, solaced with music, and raised bilingual children. In midlife as a single parent, she spread her wings and sampled her own children’s athletic achievements, first by adopting her daughter’s running habit and entering marathon races. But even more awesome, she bravely sought to experience the pleasure experienced by her son, the amazing rock climber Alex Honnold, and initiated climbing lessons. Here she proudly relates her phenomenal accomplishment of scaling the breathtaking monolith El Capitain in Yosemite Park with her renowned son while in her mid-sixties. This is a stirring autobiographical tale of a multitalented woman who ignores barriers and succeeds with the strength of her inner determination. This is an engrossing story written in absorbing prose that will fascinate the reader and trigger applause for the escapades of this liberated woman.
