Ever stopped to really consider how the woman youve become is a result of all the decisions youve made, no matter how monumental or insignificant those decisions might have seemed in the moment? Thats the essential message of Still Points North (The Dial Press), Leigh Newmans memoir about reconciling her childhood in Alaska with her adulthood in New York. You dont always know youre making a choice when youre making a choice, Newman says. Other times, you know youre making a choice that could determine the rest of your life. Its a thought-provoking book, and one you should read with your sneakers nearby: When youre finished, youll feel like you need to go hiking to sort it all out.
