Lieber, by Newtown author and artist Patty Barkman, weaves the story of her long marriage to Leon Barkman with her own autobiography and fascinating memories of the couple’s travels and travails, as well as their richly colored friendships. The book also reveals Patty’s wrenching experience of the Sandy Hook massacre, which followed Leon’s death by 83 dark days. As two young adventurers and iconoclasts come together in Salzburg in 1965, a story of love and loss unfolds with wit, joy, piercing grief, and moving accounts of Patty’s highly attuned perceptions of natural phenomena and beauty. As Newtown seeks to heal itself so, too, does the author. Lieber is her gift to all those who suffer loss, as well as a poignant expression of hope and spirit. All profits from the sale of this book will go to the Newtown Caregiver Cause, as a tribute to those who have given selflessly to help others.
