A thwarted moose attack. Hurricane Isabel. Dodging elk in Montana. COVID-19. Summertime at Girl Scout Camp. Growing up in the country. Oh, and don’t forget the naked man in an elevator. A joy from start to finish, this book tells of a less challenging time growing up in rural Virginia. Later years adventures with friends and family, including the sudden loss of the love of her life. A beautiful book of poetry add to the recipe.

Her colorful stories about growing up in the country are reminders of a less-complicated time.

Her travel stories make us wish we’d been there for all the fun. So, pour a cup of tea, put your feet up and enjoy this lovely ride!
