Though best known today as the star of the television series Once & Again and Sisters, Sela Ward considers herself a small-town girl. The eldest of four children, she was raised by a father who helped her believe in herself, and by a mother who taught her the importance of virtues such as self-respect, grace, and sacrifice. In her hometown or Meridian, Mississippi, Sela learned ways that would remain with her throughout life.
Later, she found herself pining for the comforts of her small-town childhood -- and searching for a way to balance her children's West Coast upbringing with more natural way of life. She and her husband built a second home on a farm in Meridian, where the family could retreat several times each year. But with her mother's death, Sela's simple journey home became a turning point in her life, as she pondered her mother's complicated legacy, and came to terms with just what it was she herself was searching for.
Filled with warmth and laughter, Homesick is a book to treasure: an exploration of the lessons we carry away with us from childhood, and a celebration of the bittersweet legacy of home.
