When Lizzie’s father finds himself out of work during the General Motors strike in 1970, he packs up his family and takes them from the Motor City to his mother’s farm in Virginia. Lizzie, along with her sisters, is in for an adventure she could never have dreamed of! The ‘city girls’ not only learn to milk cows, fish with cane poles, and feed chickens, they also learn about life and death... in the most natural of settings. Along the way, Lizzie encounters many joyful experiences, discovering the real meaning of life among family and rural lifestyles. Lizzie’s Blue Ridge Memories will take readers back to a simpler time—a time of self-discovery, true family values, and real imagination! For readers eight years old to eighty-eight years old!

Review:

 This book took me back to when the good ol' days were just that The Good Ol' Days when a neighbor was a true neighbor and families stuck together. The story is very heartwarming, easy reading especially for the ages between 8 and 12. I especially enjoyed this book because as the author writes about different happenings, the reader could easily visualize the actions and surroundings. This book would make a great gift and I hope that she continues to write more books for this age group
