              In 2017, RenA (c)e Hollis interviewed 120 people over the age of 100, living in every region of New Zealand. Along the way, she had the privilege of interviewing 23 World War II veterans. Her goal in compiling the book was to preserve New Zealand history by sharing the stories an...d memories of our eldest citizens. She wants all people to value the elderly and to read and appreciate their stories and contribution to our society. Most importantly, she wants to ensure that that they are not forgotten and do not become invisible in our communities, but instead are honoured and celebrated. In this collection of interviews, we meet opera singers and farmers, a politician and a racing car driver, a nun and a freedom fighter with Gandhi, and even a member of Hip Operation - the oldest hip-hop group in the world! They have witnessed momentous global events and technological innovations that have changed our world. From the everyday to the extraordinary, these are the stories of people who have lived through history and whose message of resilience and making the best of things has so much to offer the generations that have followed them.

              Time gives us the wisdom to realise a mother's sacrifice, a father's love, a friend's loyalty, or a grandparent's kindness, as loss and love turn to memory. Often as time passes, we can find ourselves looking back at moments in our lives and only then truly being able to explore ...the defining moments and complex feelings and emotions that make us who we are. These 25 stories of loss and love from around the world are inspiring, brave and heartbreaking reminders of what is most important: life, love, memory, beauty. As author John Green once said, 'You can love someone so much aEURO| But you can never love people as much as you can miss them.' These real-life stories are moments in people's lives that show us the importance of forgiving, the tragedy in forgetting and the turmoil of moving on. From a wife in the heart of South Africa, reminiscing on her husband being taken by the river; to an Australian woman contemplating the childhood loss of her baby siblings from a new perspective; or the slow burn of unrequited childhood love in 1950s Canada and more, see how loved ones are honoured in this gripping compilation. Interspersed with apt quotes by people as diverse as Beethoven, Abraham Lincoln, Dr Seuss, John Lennon and C.S. Lewis, this is a book that can be read and connected with time and again. Here we can find the timeless wisdom in what makes us all profoundly human.
