Overview

From the talented pen of author Elizabeth Brown comes an inspirational, semi-autobiographical story of a family who grew up with the wonders of farm life during the 1930s and 1940s. Travel back in time to a place of purity and innocence where fond memories were made; memories so wonderful-and so valuable-they are now forever etched into the minds and onto the hearts of those who made them.
Written in a style reminiscent of Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House Series, Brown's work opens the door to a rich American history of life on the farm. This superbly written story of the trials, tribulations, love, hope, and happiness of farm life is a true-to-life account of those wonderful times.
Opening a window to the past, Elizabeth Brown's book gives more than just a glimpse into the daily trials of life in rural America. It is also remembrances of how farm life was wonderful-for the most part-when the sky was the bluest, the clouds were the whitest, and the rain in the summertime was the warmest. The smell of freshly baked pies coming from her mother's kitchen, the assortment of smells from the barn, the scent of the chickens with their eggs, and the wonderful smell of freshly mown hay were all part of the farm experience.
"Wild flowers grew all around us and plenty of wild berries were waiting to be picked. We were only limited by our imaginations-and in our case, imaginations ran wild."
With a thoughtful glimpse into the past, you'll share cherished memories of love, laughter, and tears. And you will learn how memories-both large and small-later become the threads in the very fabric of our beings.
