Overview

From the talented pen of author Elizabeth Brown comes this inspirational semi-autobiographical story of the lives of those few individuals who grew up with the wonders of farm life during the nineteen thirties and forties.

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 story of those wonderful days of innocence.

The years on the farm will forever etched in the minds and hearts of those who lived it and have become the fabric of their being. It was truly a time of innocence. Farm life for those fortunate enough to live it provided a vast knowledge base to draw from for the rest of their lives.

Opening a window to the past, Elizabeth Brown’s book gives more than a glimpse into the daily trials of life in rural America. 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 summer time was the warmest and smelled the freshest. The assortment of smells of the barn, the pigs in the pigpen, the chickens with their egg and feather odors and the wonderful smell of fresh-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.”

Meet the Author

After leaving the farm and raising four children, Elizabeth Brown became widowed after 27 years of marriage. Reinventing herself, she went back to school and throughout the years, was fortunate enough to pursue any project that interested her.
She says, “The following by Erma Bombeck says it best for me. ‘When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, “I used everything you gave me.’”
