May 20, 2016It is always good to get notes from friends telling me they enjoyed the book. This one came today from my good friend, Liz Britt. You may or may not remember but I purchased the above along with “Silent Whispers” the evening we held the celebration of the Jordanville book. I also purchased the Jordanville book. As you know, I stay busy, and don’t have many days that I just get off Planet Earth, but today was one. I did not feel well this morning (feeling better now) so decided to get in the easy chair and rest or whatever. I picked up the above book, which I had not read, and have read it today. I really enjoyed it. I did not grow up here, but it is amazing how closely the activities of our lives have paralleled. Similar stories, games, daily life, etc. I must admit that I was born in 1938, so we were not twisting in our local theater in Centreville!I read a lot, but just had not selected this one…I am now hoping to get into “Silent Whispers.” Enjoyed the book, and wanted you to know....

You have a knack for capturing feeling. My daughter has it but I’m going to have to rattle her. She’s had it for a while and I’d like it back on my desk.

I found it on Lulu.com, but saw no way to order it. Any suggestions? We moved to Tallassee in '53 so I know I will relate to alot of it even if I never knew some of the older folks mentioned.

Dec 8, 2013This thoughtful and well written book brought back images from my own childhood as I was reading. It is warm and inviting and a magical way to go back and leave the myriad demands of modern life behind, even if just for a short while.
