    Funny, Touching, Thought-Provoking

    Cradle a cup of tea in your favorite chair and read this warm and funny book leisurely, for that is how it's meant to be enjoyed. The book is based on seven years of columns in Richmond Magazine, allowing us to observe the world changing even as Beasley's own life changes. Watching the years go by in monthly time capsules is fascinating. We pass the gates of Beasley's life, as she reflects on the death of her young husband, cares for her aging parents, and then sees the two of them dying. Her sons are getting older her grandchildren are born. Beasley's writing is intensely personal. We feel the pain of 9/11 as though it were fresh, for in that column it was. I was mesmerized by her story of the dying eagle, which she cradled by the side of the highway after its trauma of being hit by several cars. I felt with her the souls of beauty she has encountered along the way as a reporter in Richmond, Virginia--just ordinary folks that Mrs. Beasley has found something extraordinary in. Wonderfully captivating. -- Connie Lapallo, Author of Dark Enough to See the Stars in a Jamestown Sky
