About this Item

"This book, LILACS TO SHARE, written by two Demi sisters began with a conversation about the buildings on their farmas they existed when the girls were young. The authors, Rose Demi Trochlil and Carol Demi Sisterman, lived on a farm near Owatonna in southern Minnesota in the late 1940s and 50s, Neither has lived there since 1959., The farm was sold in 1969. Whenever Rose returned to Minnesota for a visit with relatives, she drove to the farm to see the changes. Rose completed a watercolor painting-an overview of the farm as she recalled it from her childhood-and show it to Carol. This sparked an idea for Carol who moderated a writing group at the time and was searching for a writing theme for the class. Ah ha. The inspiration came from the buildings! What memories do we have connected with each building? First we wrote separately about what we recalled-building by building. As we shared these chapters more and more memories came to mind. The story was written especially for Lori, our youngest sister, who was born when Rose was 20 and Carol 17. Lori did not share these early years. In addition, we decided to write for family, grandchildren, and for readers young and old, whether or not they lived on a small farm in the Upper Midwest, to share and explain life on the farm before electricity, bnefore indoor pluumbing, before electric heat, before television and the electronic age. Photos and conversations make the account a unique portrayal of the era. This story tells of a time when like was simpler and much harder physically, a time we recall fondly and hope you enjoy, also." This book has 200 pages and is illustrated throughout. It is hand number as copy #41. The book is a SIGNED copy from the author, Carol Demi Sisterman. Overall, this is a FINE copy of this VERY SCARCE title. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall.
