*** I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ***
This is not the typical book I read. There was no vampires, fairies, dragons, or end of the world prophecies. However, it was a fun relaxing read. I am learning that memoirs in any form are hard to write. It is not easy to share personal stories and anecdotes with people you know, much less a whole world you don’t know. The author has spent the last 40 years of her life writing a column for the Ferndale Enterprise. Several of the vignettes that appear here first appeared in her column.
I appreciated the author’s honest look at herself and she seems to have a good ability to laugh at herself. This book has an Erma Bombeck feel to it. I think the author’s intent with this book is to show the reader the importance of living life to the fullest by sharing her own experiences. I can imagine her life as I read about her adjustments after forty years of living in several busy cities to living on a small farm in a small town. Having lived in both big and small cities, I know first hand the challenges and joys of both. She does an excellent job. It is worth the reader especially for a reader who enjoys real life stories.
