Tennessee Keys Embree was my great great grandmother. I was absolutely amazed to read these diaries even though there is some repetition per enteries. To really know what life was like in the 1850-1870's in frontier Texas (the new West), these diaries are a must read. Their hands were always busy making something to sustain life. Candles, soap, quilts, clothes,and you make it,they were busy creating it. We take life for granted now-a-days! Women had so little outlet for expression of thoughts and feelings. Women were "taught" to just accept their place or standing. Learn how the weather and health conditions ruled their lives. I could not help but think about how communication with relatives and neighbors was their anchor, their fun, their education and their ties to community; yet today, the "younger" generations are turning to electronics for most of this personal contact. Ask yourself if electronic communication is equal to the personable "visits" or sharing of a meal that were regular daily ocurrences back then? Tandem Lives will give every reader a new appreciation for those women that paved the way for us. My g g grandmother was one heck of a woman.
