Overview

"Every morning when the sun rises it brings back memories of your life and loans them to you for another day. At least this is what Cooper believes and uses as the inspiration for this new book of stories. As each new day dawns, the sunrise provides us with memories of our past and in that way helps to shape our present and our future. After all, memories are golden drops of dew on the lawn of our lives. They are there for us to discover and to savor. Join Cooper as he remembers a life well lived and a present that is inspiring." Cooper begins another homespun and genuine revelry through life's turns. With an entertaining wit and easygoing style, he once again reminds us of life's essentials and what it means to be part of a world that still has the power to leave us speechless. As you open these pages, the sunrise is breaking through the clouds and the memories wait.
