This is perhaps the most beautifully written memoir I've ever read. Its lovely and languid descriptions of the picturesque valley, the farm and gardens are equaled only by the charming and funny descriptions of the antics (and conversations!) of the farm animals. What a joy this is to read. I didn't rush through it because I found it such a peaceful way to de-stress when I needed to. I'd read a chapter or two, or even a few pages and feel calmed by the flowing language, which painted scenes of baby animals growing in verdant pastures, kids skating on the frozen winter pond, birds trilling summer songs and garden projects of all kinds. Mrs. Trissel, a farm wife in a setting that makes you want to move to the Shenandoah immediately, has an insightful way of weaving the world around her into a quilt of colors and patterns, scents and sounds. Her perspectives are delightful. She doesn't gloss over the hardships, but takes in the joys with such depth all is tempered and balanced.

Mrs. Trissel has an amazing knowledge of flowers and plants and a sense of humor that had me laughing on many occasions. Whether accompanying her husband to the county fair, pouring over seed catalogues with her youngest daughter or rolling her eyes affectionately at her older daughter's ballooning wedding plans, the reader feels part of that life. She has a fascinating background that is revealed in snippets here and there as offhandedly as plucking flowers in the many gardens on the farm. Both that background and her obvious knowledge of literature (lovely quotes included throughout) add depth to her day to day life which comes across to the reader.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I've read a lot of memoirs, but none so appealing as this one. Highly recommended.

I really enjoyed this book. Very well written. I love how the author told how she saw her life and how beautiful it is there. Beth knows how to tell a story and keep you interested. It was if she pulled you into the story. This is a must read author for me.

This lovely memoir has been lovingly written by Beth Trissel and illustrated with photos by her mom and daughter. Readers share the four seasons with Beth and her family on their Virginia farm in the Shenandoah Valley. I loved this mini-tour and know others will also.

Brilliance of word and image create a compelling desire to share their vision of their home place! Beth Trissel and her family have captured the heart of the Shenandoah, and their readers hearts equally!
A must have volume in any Americana Collection.

What an amazing book. I just love to read journals for the simple reason most put their heart and soul into what they write. Beth Trissel has managed to that in her book Shenandoah Watercolors. The more I read , the more I thought of my life as a child back in a little country town in Nebraska.

The story of Daphne and Darlene along with their newest drake Don and wild mallard Dwayne brought rounds of laughter. I could just see Dwayne pursing his gal.

The descriptions of the Virginia countryside are marvelous and if you have never been there before you are in for a treat. I have made a couple trips through the Virginia country side and as I read Ms. Trissel's book I could picture myself being there as she plants her garden, chases the old heifer away from her bushes, going to the county fairs and patiently waiting the arrival of her grandchild.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and is one book I will read again if only to take another trip down memory lane with Beth Trissel. Excellent book. Highly recommended.
