Off Kilter: A Woman’s Journey to Peace with Scoliosis, Her Mother, & Her Polish Heritage
Life is a journey we all make, adjusting to conditions along the way. Linda Wisniewski’s memoir takes the reader along as she travels, keeping what feeds her soul and discarding the rest. As she comes to terms with her Polish Catholic heritage, her physical deformity, and her widowed mother, the author finds peace lies at the heart of unconditional love.
Readers of Angela’s Ashes and The Joy Luck Club will enjoy this mother-daughter story with roots far from American soil.
Author Susan Wittig Albert calls Off Kilter “a splendid first memoir about the difficult business of finding balance in our lives. Funny, honest, deeply moving, Off Kilter reminds us just how hard it is to adjust to the physical pain, the emotional loss, and even the surprising beauty of being fully who we are.”
