Woman on the Edge of Age

Take a journey through the life of Eva Mewes and meet interesting people. Find your relatives in her word portraits of Bampie, Nanie, Uncle Ernie, and Grandma Carrie. Experience a barn at milking time in "Winter Milking," and understand the life of a real farmer from unloading hay to Sunday dinner. Go back to growing up on the home front during World War II and being a teenager in the fifties when "cars were power." Follow her life into the challenges of marriage, the struggles of a first apartment, and the desire for a dream home. Identify with her poignant feelings at the birth of her child in "I Fell for You, Babe." Receive Eva's perspective on getting older and dealing with parents as they age.

This is a book of writings that beautifully express the life experiences of Eva and, perhaps, of you.
