9781463796945: Bridgewater Stories - A Childhood Memoir by Wilma Casey Warren

"Bridgewater Stories" is a coming-of-age memoir set in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia during the 1930's Depression Era. The book tells of growing up in the Casey family, beginning with the author's father being transferred from his U.S. Forest Service post in Arkansas to Rockingham County, Virginia. Warren writes of her siblings and of her many life-long friends who went on to become what Tom Brokaw termed "The Greatest Generation." Her unabashed optimism is steeped in these small-town values, but her sense of the larger world is simultaneously influenced by the presence of Bridgewater College just a few blocks away, and by the family's strong connection to the neighboring camps of President Roosevelt's Civilian Conservation Corps. At just over 100 pages, most readers will find this to be a "quick read," but with powerful emotional qualities that speak to our sense of childhood, and to our longing for lifelong friends such as the ones Warren describes in these stories. Wilma Casey Warren, now in her 80's and living in Roanoke, Virginia, began this book almost 20 years ago - but set it aside as she dealt with her health concerns. She was encouraged by numerous friends to dust off her earlier manuscript and bring these stories to completion. With the help of several close friends, and with the editing and book production by her son, Stephen Warren, "Bridgewater Stories" is now available for your enjoyment!
