Nancy Scovil


“I kept the family secret. Actually, I didn't know what the family secret was.”

From a troubled start, then heady days in Toronto of the 1970s and early ’80s as a young adult, life offers the choice of a different life. Nancy Scovil’s elegant memoir describes a complex journey to align outer lived experience with a deeper sense of self. The Great Beauty embraces the paradox of being an individual, while at the same time embodying an awareness of Oneness – a paradox that holds a gateway to wisdom that waits to be remembered.
