Our November Books & Brews features author Marietta McCarty discussing her book Leaving 1203 Emptying a Home- Filling the Heart: A love story of a house and its inhabitants. This simple home on a hill won the soulful appreciation of all the lives sheltered under its slate roof and within its brick walls. It was refuge when happy or sad, anxious or calm, sick or well young or old. Bereaved following her mother's death, McCarty faces the daunting task of emptying her beloved family home. How might she find a way through the inevitable emotional turmoil and accumulation of more than five decades in the house at 1203?
