So, somebody grabs you by the elbow and tells you that a book written by a little old lady who looks like Mrs. Santa Claus is really well written. Then the elbow-grabber adds that it is the first book the little old lady has ever written, that it was self-published, and that if you want to buy a copy, you can get it only at Horton Hardware in Afton, Henry's Diner, or directly from the author.

You respond by saying ... what?

"Let go of my elbow, you lunatic! Have you lost your mind?"

New scenario: I am holding a book in my hand. It is called "Remembering Hazel & Ed," and it was written by Edna Lockwood, the aforementioned octogenarian. I am not Edna's daughter, publicist, next-door neighbor, or friend, and I am telling you: This is a damn good book! Buy it! Read it! Give it as a gift to your parents, your children, your siblings, your friends.

It is memoir about Edna's parents, Hazel and Ed Angle, and it is part adventure story, part disaster movie (how many fires can one family endure?), part psychological study, and part paean to the human sprit. Specifically, to Edna's mother's indomitable spirit.

Clearly, Hazel is Edna's hero. After we finish the last page of the book, she is our hero, too.

I could tell you that the book starts out in a thrillingly terrifying way with a devastating fire in which Hazel's four-year-old grandchild dies after being enveloped in flames. Or how, after an explosion involving an acetylene torch, Hazel's son-in-law dies in a fire, too. Or the third fire that burns their life savings and everything that they owned. Or even the fourth fire that started in a baby chick incubator in which their entire house was "pretty much consumed.

Edna is my great-grandmother so to read about her life and my great great grandparents is really neat. I am lucky to have the opportunity to learn about them via this book. I just started reading it today but I am enjoying it very much. It is very interesting to read about life as it was then...I think anyone would be able to enjoy it.

Edna Lockwood is obviously a natural-born storyteller. Her candid recollections about her parents in the good old days (and not-so-good old days) are sometimes witty and often poignant. I won't spoil your reading pleasure by telling you more; suffice it to say, this is a good book to read and would make a nice gift.
