A Proud Heritage Reclaimed

Can heritage slipped sideways through a closing door be rightfully claimed? This memoir explores possible answers when the author, after years abroad, marries a longtime native of Mississippi and returns to the home of her ancestors. In 1981 the author settled in South Mississippi on her husband’s tree farm. Over 100 years earlier, her maternal great-grandmother--tragically widowed on her wedding day--left Mississippi for North Carolina. Although she remarried, her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were long-removed from their heritage in the Magnolia state. The author’s fortuitous marriage and relocation brought her back to the doorstep of this heritage, though for many years she did not claim it.

"This was well written. Discriptions were easily visualized. I expected more genealogy, but enjoyed the story very much."
