"In her new book, The Lambs, Carole George shares the fulfillment she has experienced over years tending a flock of sheep. I hope that this book will inspire readers to become more compassionate toward the living beings deprived of the many privileges we humans enjoy." -His Holiness The Dalai Lama "The Lambs is beautifully written, and right on target as an example of the natural-pastoral-world where we may achieve the fullness of human experience. Our descendants may gravitate toward the equivalent of [Carole's] Virginia farm." -Edward O. Wilson, University Research Professor Emeritus, Harvard University In this touching memoir about the relationship between father, daughter, and animals, Carole explores life after adopting thirteen pet Karakul lambs. Throughout her years with the lambs and her aging father, she comes to realize the distinct personality of each creature, and to understand more fully the almost spiritual bond between man and animal. Carole's life raising, caring for, and eventually losing the lambs parallels a similar experience with her father. This is a beautiful book in every way that will touch the hearts of readers everywhere.

Author Biography

All of Carole George's endeavors - whether in the practice of law or the renovation of a derelict farm - derive from her profound respect for nature and her enduring love of French piano music. She is currently writing about the meanings we confer on material possessions, based on items she has found that belonged to Claude Debussy's daughter, Chouchou.
