Carson's work rocked our country to its core and engendered the grass roots movement that has, until now, carried us forward in environmental protection. "No witchcraft, no enemy action had silenced the rebirth of new life in this stricken world. The people had done it themselves."

Published: Northfield Publishing - January 1st, 2015

How often do we express ourselves to a loved one, only to have them react as if we had said something else entirely? This book helps us to understand what "language" we individually prefer to use in communicating with our spouse and family members. And, more importantly, it helps us to understand the "language" in which they communicate. How else can we achieve understanding in relationships? I have a dear friend whose family endured several unthinkable losses. She credits this book with helping her to understand how to communicate with each family member in the way that resonated with them--and helping her family to cope with the fallout of grief.

Environmentally-friendly recycled paper packaging adds to the good feelings engendered by using this pen. However, the best aspect of the Seven Year Pens is not their longevity, it's their entertaining sayings and images that attract us--from the "Love Letters" red version, to mermaids, unicorns, lightening bolts, and other clever sayings ("Cat Lady") and images on the clips that keep us coming back!
