J.M. Huxley’s description of life in Southern California prior to her life on a Midwestern farm was like a trip down mem- ory lane for me. We were so blessed to live as kids there, and specifically in West Los Angeles. I loved those days and so very much miss my parents and our life in that beautiful old Spanish home on Benecia Avenue near Olympic. I still day- dream about those days so long ago.

As a weekly columnist for the Kansas City Star for almost ten years, I think I understand what makes for engaging prose. J.M. Huxley has one of the finest prose styles I have ever read. I am always impressed by her distinctive, warm and caring voice...her empathic ability to inhabit the hearts and souls of other people, as well as her attention to detail. I think this is an important element to Huxley’s wonderful style. She knows that God is in the details. I am jealous of Huxley’s uncanny, natural gift for writing. What she writes comes from her heart, and her heart is a beautiful place indeed.

You will laugh and cry with J.M. Huxley, whose writing is a unique combination of Erma Bombeck and Nora Ephron, who once said, “Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim.” Few women have a way of talking as frankly about their lives in a way that is both relivable and relatable...Her ability to paint with words is truly likened to Rembrandt’s paint brush, adding color to an otherwise overlooked canvas. For all to be able to share and relive her story is a gift God has surely bestowed on us.
