About the author:
Meredith Kennon was born in Aberdeen, South Dakota, in 1951, and spent her childhood years on a farm near there, enjoying all the blessings that such an upbringing affords. Her husband worked as a consultant for many years, giving the family an opportunity to see much of the United States and enjoy its diversity. The children now grown, she and her husband live in a small town in southeastern South Dakota, where they enjoy their country life. They have been married forty-three years and have six children and twenty-five grandchildren.
Her writing reflects her values and her passion for all things rural and domestic. Her books are a throwback to simpler times, even old-fashioned. She believes that there are many, like herself, who retreat to their reading to find respite from a hectic, modern world, and she writes to that end.

A Nostalgic Treasury of Seasons Past and Simpler Times

Authored by Meredith Kennon

Grandmothers will love this nostalgic treasury of seasons past and simpler times. Space is provided throughout for personal journal entries by the reader, as memories come to mind. In days gone by, the rearing of large families and carving out lives without the modern conveniences of today, allowed little time or energy for the recording of thoughts and feelings. Those who did were few and far between. Even today, with all the technology at our disposal, journal-writing can be a daunting prospect, especially as we get older. The task is not only enormous; it can also be bittersweet, encumbered by the awakening of unwelcome memories of difficult times. The aim of this book is to lessen the affects of the bitter and emphasize the recollections of the sweet. It is a memory-triggering collection of stories, quotes, and pieces of a simpler time. Whether read aloud to children or in private and in silence, this treasury seeks to release the ephemeral memories of childhood, that fleeting time of innocence and utter trust. Spaces are left throughout the book for the reader to note their own thoughts, memories, or impressions that come to mind while reading-notes that may very well prove priceless to the generations that follow. It's the perfect gift for the grandmother in your life.
