About the Book

The time is 1991, and the family has moved their matriarch from her treasured home of over five decades to small-town living USA. Two of the family’s daughters have recovered lost items from their grandmother’s attic lost for decades. The discovery leads the author on a journey to uncover their beginning—that of family.

The treasures recovered that day will begin a journey back into time and offer a glimpse of a simpler and sweeter time and place.

Travel back in time to meet two youngsters straight from the rural North Central Florida backwoods and witness their growth to adulthood, straight into a full and wonderful life of love, laughter, and devotion.

The characters of these stories are true living characters of my own family and are much loved and respected.

Witness a treasured letter from a successful businessman and much revered relative that contains a heartfelt thanks to a mentor. This letter would open the author’s heart, mind, and soul to discover her beginnings.

The stories contained herein are lessons for those descendants left and hope they will know from whence they came.
