SARRANDA’S LEGACY by Celia Miles
This third installment of Sarranda’s saga leads her to the poignancy and heartbreak of an unexpected new marriage. In the mountains of Jackson County, NC, Sarranda continues to run her mill, renew and strengthen old and new acquaintances—especially her circle of strong, determined women with whom she continues her legacy of doggedly shepherding them to self-realization —and her discovery of the redemptive, healing power resulting from her one extraordinary and selfless gift of love.
The paperback is available from Celia for $13.95 including postage at firstname.lastname@example.org or Kindle Edition

“Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers.
Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society.
Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears.
Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi
