"Sometimes a person needs a quiet place."

A place that's far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life --

a place that isn't ringing or talking or roaring or playing.

But sometimes that place isn't easy to find.

Explore what it's like to find a special someplace where we

all can think our own thoughts and feel our own feelings.

Praise For A Quiet Place

"The pretty, framed, full-page pictures have an old-fashioned Saturday Evening Post feel to them."


"In his latest effort, Wood hearkens back to a simpler time to suggest an alternative to the modern child....Solid soul guidance for a media-saturated society."
