About the Book

In late January, 2017, our daughter announced that she was pregnant with her third child. In her next breath, she told us that she and Adrian were moving to Tennessee with the kids. Since that day, my life has turned upside down and as I hovered on the brink of entering the 7th decade of my life, I left California to follow the grands. I hope I can find a good cup of coffee when I reach the other side.

About the Author

When Anne Jeffries left California with her husband, she had only the vaguest notion of the change that was in store for her. It was one thing to visit a rural, riverfront town and quite something else to live there. From small town Central Valley California agricultural life to Southern agriculture life, bigger changes were in store for her than she could possibly have imagined. For the next year she would find herself laughing at herself as her California sensibilities collided with Southern ways. From the difficulty of navigating language, relationships that connected through many generations, the importance of church connections, and the how-to of things, Anne entered a twilight zone of daily life light years from her normal perception of everyday life and in the end made it her own.
