More About the Author
"It's Not My Mountain Anymore" was my first best seller. It is my story of growing up in a seventh generation Appalachian family. It invites you into an intimate tale of a bygone era of sweet simplicity, the closeness of family, our ties to the land and the ways of a people who knew how to make life work under any condition.e
It includes life-changing experiences in The Foxfire Book classroom.
My second book, "A Time For Every Purpose" was released in June, 2015. I offer simple Bibical prescriptions for living in today's world as well as first-hand accounts of each season as it pertains to our mountain family.

We also witness growth in the mountains as with he own growth and maturity.
The ever changing world tries to accompany change in society. Many feel we have lost so much valuable lessons of time that we need to recapture a portion of it.
I would recommend this for discussion groups, plus, just pleasant reading.
There are some 'rough' slang words but basically clean enough reading.
I am glad I had the opportunity to read this book to get a more modern take on the area and the ongoing changes. It is, I suppose, inevitable that change (or "progress") must arrive to any area, any group of people, and as the author notes, some change can be positive.
The author's "voice" is delightful. Her mother had a strong sense of humor and clearly her daughter inherited a love of laughter and an ability to inspire it.
Despite the sections dealing with negative emotions left by land development, economic changes, and other issues, one is not left feeling "down" after finishing the book. The author's sense of hope and faith is strong and keeps the book from becoming a memorial of "the way things once were" but rather an expression of how much was and is worthwhile and is worth preserving or restoring.
I am not a religious person at all. The author clearly has a strong faith and it is expressed in the book, but it is not preachy or proselytizing in the least. Her quiet yet strong belief is somehow reassuring and comforting.
I obtained this book for free for the Kindle and will be strongly considering purchasing an actual copy for my library.
For me, the most important part of this book was the ability of the author to tell a compelling story while she was also creating an entertaining experience for her readers. There were a few slow spots in this book, but the writing was well thought out and I was able to enjoy the book without ever thinking of giving up before the end. This is an emotional book filled with the remembrance of days gone by and some really wonderful descriptive language. I liked it.
