"Beth Ohlsson’s collection of recorded stories, Distilling Hope, is as courageous as it is entertaining. And yes, it is entertaining. (Like, I-missed-my-exit-outside-of-Chattanooga entertaining.) Using traditional tales from a variety of cultures, and personal stories of family, Beth brings examples of caution and hope with vulnerability, heart and just a little bit of a sweet smirk." Andy Offut Irwin - Storyteller
