  • I had the pleasure of meeting the author of this book's granddaughter last week. She and her mother mentioned the book so I checked Amazon and was so pleased to find a copy of this book. It is written from the heart and memories of their mother and grandmother. I love it! So direct and full of joy! Many stories are written from the memories of a small child and her memory of family stories. Thank you Jessie Lee for sharing your life with us.

  • For women of any age, valuable information on the lives of our grand mothers, the place of women in society, and the long way we have traveled to reach our freedom.
    Enter a real family setting, with valuable information about psychological and cultural values, seemingly lost today.
    A demonstration of love and devotion from a mother born a free spirit.

  • Interesting, easy read. I enjoyed the story and am inspired by her age.

  • This was an excellent story. It Brought back lots of memories as she told about her childhood. In spite of the many heartaches in her life she managed to write a very upbeat book., I heard the story of the writing of this book at a writer's class with Charley and commend the author for a wonderful job. Both in the writing of the book and in raising her family.

  • Very well done by someone who never wrote until she was a Senior citizen. Very interesting history.

  • Very nice book about her life.

  • I have read books in the past very similar to this one (books written by "old timers") and
    some knowledge I have picked up : people HAD to work hard (physically) to do a lot of
    things (the days BEFORE the machine did it),simple pleasures (picnics,reading,singing,
    dancing,outdoor activities),people TRUSTED and KNEW their' neighbors a lot more
    in the old days,people attended church,parents taught their' children proper behavior and
    morals,people were willing to help others in need,people appreciated their belongings a lot
    more and took care of them instead of the,"throwaway society" we have today.

    On the negative side:these people got sick A LOT and diseases we do not hear about today
    like,scarlet fever,polio,tuberculosis,etc Some women stayed in abusive marriages,there were
    no services to help alcoholics or drug abusers or abused women, there was social injustice,etc.

    Jessie Lee Brown Foveaux (1899-1999) has written a wonderful,straightforward look at
    the world that is in the past. In her narrative,she speaks to ALLl of us,not just her family.
    I enjoyed the trip back in time. I wish I could have experienced some of it too. Thanks
    for all the memories,Jessie Lee.

  • I enjoyed this book. It may not be an earth shaker in classic lit , but how lovely it is to read about a time when families were closely knit . While reading this , I could only think that our society has not improved with all the benefits of technology . These people valued their family members and seemed to rely on one another. They appeared to be willing to make sacrifices for one another , and did not seem obsessed with their social status .
    They seemed to value the right things and defined " happiness" and " the good life " in a far more wise way .
