Our Souls to Keep Book Description:

If you've ever fallen in love with the wrong person, been held back by your insecurities, endured the pressures of family, dealt with the loss of a loved one, or fought to overcome obsessive behaviours in yourself or in others, then you've participated in the folly of life. In other words, you've undertaken a role in the high drama - and comedy - of a Shakespeare play. Covering such universal subjects as identity, the battle of the sexes, family relationships, love, loss and death, Maguire shows how the dilemmas illustrated in the bard's classic tragedies, comedies and histories can help readers explore their own emotions and judgements. Together, Maguire and Shakespeare offer suggestions, comfort, empathy, and encouragement as they set out a timeless principle for living. To read Shakespeare is to understand what it means to be human. To read "Where There's a Will There's a Way" is to better understand how to deal with it.
