About this title

Synopsis:

When the son of a nearby neighbor brings a plate of food to a local farmer during the Christmas holiday season in the late 70's, he is shocked to believe that the farmer might have wanted to end his life by freezing to death.While the farmer's son fires up the old woodstove in the room he is in and brings in wood, he asks about an old black and white photograph of a short, stout woman he has seen pinned on the wall. The farmer tells him the history of his family and the farming community that was established when his grandfather came back from the Civil War.And he goes back home imagining how it might have been and remembers his own early teenage years on Mt. Lake in northwestern Connecticut as a way of life he and the farmer have lost.

From the Author:

Jenford is a personal story about a time in my life when I was 13, when my mother took me and my young sister up to a mountaintop in north/western Connecticut to live after she separated from my stepfather. It was just a two-room summer cottage we lived in at first with no running water or bathroom. I would then have to get our water from the brook that ran through the property while she added onto it with a regular bathroom and living room. During that time, while I was attending the local elementary school, I got to know the people who lived there, just as different and unique as those in Jenford, and came to appreciate the self-sufficiency of the last remaining farming brothers who still lived there then.
