"We think we've seen the inner workings of rich WASP families during the middle of the 20th century - O'Hara and Cheever come to mind - but we haven't quite seen it all. In Lisa Barstow's strangely affecting memoir, Don’t Go Back to Sleep, we get the details as she actually lived that life and then fought against it."

- Anita Shreve, Best selling author of THE WEIGHT OF WATER and many other books

Don't Go Back to Sleep

A Spiritual Memoir

From the Foreward:  Last year I found a photograph of my great-grandmother as a young woman. I had never seen her before. Staring at her face, I tried to find some familial likeness, but mostly, I wondered who she was and what she believed in. I knew then that I was writing this memoir for my grandchildren and for the generations that will come after them. I want to leave them a legacy, the story of an ancestor whose blood is mingled with theirs.

Poems From the Heart

A Poetry Collection

A 26 page collection of 17 intimate poems by author Lisa Barstow, selected from her work over the past decade. "Writing poetry has often been self-revealing, as indeed all my writing is. I find when I'm able to reach deep within myself and express those innermost feelings on the page, I can best connect with my heart and, deeper yet, my soul."
