I've enjoyed the Stillmeadow series since 1964 when I was 13 and had the measles. To keep me from being bored, my gran brought over an armload of magazines and I found one of Gladys's Diary of Domesticity columns. Since then, I've never stopped reading about Stillmeadow. And when life gets so stressful that I feel as though my head is about to explode ... I don't reach for a Valium or a bottle of bourbon ... I reach for a Stillmeadow book and instantly life slows down, and the tension drains away as I read about the time the peaches went away (one of my favorites). I highly recommend any of her Stillmeadow or Especially books. Life can't get much better than relaxing on the couch with a cup of tea at hand and a Stillmeadow book!
Yearning For Yesteryear
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 14 years ago
I was very lucky several years ago to be browsing around at a yard sale, looking at books, naturally! There was a book called "Country Chronicle".It had the dust jacket on,worn some, but in decent condition. I thumbed through it and it caught my interest. I had never heard of Gladys Taber! Well, I read it through, and then I read it through again. I have read this book at least 6 times, and now have found the titles to all her other books, and am buying them several at a time until I have them all. What a beautiful spirit that woman had! I can't believe that I bought that book for only a dollar. What enjoyment I have had with just that one book. To have the courage to write about seeing a Unicorn on the hill above the pond eating violets;think she was a nutty old lady? She didn't care.To her, it was real, and it was a blessing. She loved all things, and I was sad to know that she has been gone from this world for quite a while.Buy this book, and her other books. You will find kindness,gentleness,generosity,and love. And---information on everything!! Emma Killingbeck
