Summary of Tree of Knowledge
“Here I am at the brink of forty ‒ without an answer.” Throughout her life, Isabel made difficult choices driven by her physical and emotional concerns. She was devoted to exploration by way of her research, reading and imagination. She attempted to address her innermost meanderings in her writings about: world events, personal histories, mysteries, fantasy, faith, and relationships involving colleagues, friends, her late mother and her sister Franca. As Isabel scrutinized the shifting forces within her and around her, she was becoming aware of impending changes at the closing of 2019.
Katalin (András) Kennedy arrived in Canada as a child refugee with her parents, after the Hungarian uprising of 1956. She attended Carleton University, obtaining her degree in English Literature and Religious Studies. Her career was spent working for the Federal Government as a program manager of national projects addressing seniors’ and women’s issues. Upon retirement, she and her now late husband, the Rev. Duncan Scott Kennedy moved to Cornwall, where she began to pursue her passion for writing first with Seaway News and then her first novel, The Women Gather.
