Carolina Comfort Three generations of one family journaled through memoirs and experiences. One portion of the book follows the correspondence of a young woman and her friends, linking over two hundred postcards sent in the early 1900's. Highlights of the fifties gleaned from family activities remind the reader of what used to be. Another section of the book describes a non-traditional choice of living aboard a boat to travel the East Coast waterways. Readers align themselves with strong family values found in this Southern family testament.
"Her work is refreshing in that she draws the reader into the descriptions of bygone eras, from the sparkle of the punch bowl to the aroma of food in the kitchen," Elizabeth Sherrill awarding the Paul Green Multimedia Award for this book. Another judge says of "My Dear Miss Kate," "What a unique way to approach preservation! Dodd takes a box of postcards dating back to the early 1900's... to provide us with an often comical social history of that era...tremondously interesting to judge." Awarded the Willie Parker Peace History Book Award.
