Into the Woods is the title and theme for this assortment of short stories, poems, essays, music, and one walking meditation. Each piece is unique in tone and genre and the result is that the collection captures the fascinating, frightening, fun, healing, and fantastical wonder of time spent in the woods. The twenty-six contributors who attend Mindful Writers Retreats in the mountains of Ligonier, Pennsylvania, are donating one hundred percent of the proceeds to support the research and work of The Children’s Heart Foundation.

I don’t usually go for an anthology but this one has exceeded my expectations. I love reading about holidays and holiday traditions. Each story in Over the River and Through the Woods gave me some of that to think on. I wondered about my own traditions and putting them in writing.
If you are a lover of Hallmark Christmas movies, you will want to pick up a copy of Over the River and Through the Woods. You will not be disappointed. I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
