About the Author

Gloria Boyd was raised in West Hartford, Connecticut. She attended Simmons College in Boston where she met and married a Harvard man. He became a journalist, and while working his way toward winning a Pulitzer Prize, she stayed home and raised their four fantastic children Peter, Susan, Andrew, and Timothy. Sometimes while filling the dishwasher, or baking an apple pie, or planning ways to make a chicken last for two family meals, she would think up quirky little short stories and file them away. She also wrote serious articles that were published in the Washington Post, Montgomery County Sentinel, Christian Science Monitor, and a small New York City weekly. Currently she is editing an autobiographical novel called, "Runaway Mama." Gloria has eight grandchildren, and is currently expecting a great-granddaughter. Presently she is enjoying her life in Ashland, Oregon. To honor her mother, Gloria changed her Gmail address to, glouiseboyd. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
This is a touching, intimate story about early 20th century life in New England told through the eyes of a young girl who expresses her longing for her mother's love through letters to her. Baby boomers, this young girl could be your grandmother. Reading Sincerely Louise, which is delightfully interspersed with photographs of the characters from the book, totally absorbed me into country life 100 years ago. A thoughtful and enlightening story. Highly recommended!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Joan A. Adamak VINE VOICE on April 10, 2012
Format: Paperback
This is a poignant tale filled with pathos, love, sorrow, anger, rebellion, strength and bewilderment within a family struggling for survival in the 1920's in northeastern rural America. The author is the daughter of Louise, the protagonist, and fictionalized this story utilizing events as she remembers them.

These two little girls, Louise, age 5, and her sister, Ruthie, age 2 are dumped by their Mama on their Gram and Grampa on a small farm. In the beginning the children do not understand why and Ruthie has little memory of her Mama. Gram and Grampa are originally from Germany, hard working and Grampa built their small house and meager furnishing by hand from trees on the farm. The only water they have in the house is from a hand pump, no electricity and a wood range. They own a cow and chickens. They live very well this way because they know how, but it is difficult for the little girls to adjust because they had lived in the city with their Mama.

Louise from the very first is aware there is some type of tension between Gram and Mama. Gram is extremely strict. Ruthie is a rebel and although Louise doesn't understand why, she feels Gram loves Ruthie and not her when Louise is Gram's helper and Ruthie just messes everything up. As the girls grow up, Louise feels responsible for and protective of Ruthie.

Each year Louise writes her Mama a short note setting forth bare facts regarding Ruthie and begging her mother to come see them. There are flashes of the mother receiving those letters and weeping that she can do nothing about taking care of her children, but neither does she go to the farm for several years.

There were too many typos. Gloria needs to fire her proof reader. Otherwise it was a very good read. It made me miss my granny.
