A Light in the Forest CD by Anne RoosSample from “A Light in the Forest” Liner Notes (music CD packaged inside 27 pages of book including historical background about each track, poetry and prose to highlight each track explanation, and musician bios)

“The forest is at once both beautiful and mysterious. You are drawn into the cool air, the mottled colors of leaves, and the secluded quiet only broken by the crunch of twigs and dry leaves underfoot.

“Something magical takes over your heart when you fall in love with the sea. A bold man would say that it’s the lure of adventure intermixed with independence, but it’s more than that.

For ages, the sea has mysteriously enticed men into dangerous work: onto maritime, whaling, and even pirate ships. These men are willing to give up stable lives on land, and their true loves, to face the uncertainty of a safe return from sea...”
