Biography: general, Memoirs, Prose: non-fiction

OUT OF WINTER is a personal account of a universal subject: the unfolding nature of our relationships with our parents as they age and as the roles and boundaries between us begin to alter.

OUT OF WINTER is a personal account of how a father's sudden illness affects a family fraught by conflict over many years.

It charts the process of grief which follows his death in 2008, and that of Carol Lee's mother only eight weeks later. Her mother's death, so swiftly after her father's, tests the limits of her ability to re-configure herself, to find who and what her mother and father are to her now, and to understand her brother's long flight into silence.

In OUT OF WINTER, Carol Lee uncovers the history of people - her parents - whom, at the end, she comes to know and love.

OUT OF WINTER confronts the idea of how well do we really know our parents?

Praise for Out of Winter

  • What a beautifully written book: sensitive without being mawkish. Essential reading for anyone watching their parents reach the inevitable and and struggling to cope.

  • Carol Lee is a courageous writer. This book is both tender and tough-minded in its record of one woman's day by day journey through a universal experience.
