After 35 years as a book editor in New York City, Ann Patty stopped working and moved to the country. Bored, aimless and lost in the woods, she hoped to challenge her restless, word-loving brain by beginning a serious study of Latin at local colleges. As she begins to make sense of Latin grammar and syntax, her studies open unexpected windows into her own life. Written with humour, heart and an infectious enthusiasm for words, Patty's book is a lesson in how learning and literature can transform the past and lead to an unexpected future.
