More Kind Words

I have been following this author’s blog for a long time. I don’t know how many times I’ve thought, “this woman needs to write a book.” FINALLY, she has! “Everything Smells Just Like Poke Salad” is everything I would have imagined. Mandy Smith


The author transitions smoothly from one story to the next, one emotion to another. David Paley

Loved every word of this charming story. I couldn’t put it down, but didn’t want it to end. Found it from reading Linda’s blog . So happy to know there are sequels to look forward to. Encouraging to know hard times don’t have to be soul-crushing. Marilyn S. Grisham


This is a delightful read full of quirky characters living through the depression in the American southern states. A true memoir written by a lady, now 93, with her daughter. Told from the perspective of Kathleen from her earliest years, it takes the reader back to a time when people didn’t realize the meaning of poverty and children were seen and not heard. Books R Best


You will want to know these folks, and follow them through adventures that helped them survive such a difficult time. Paper dolls cut from Sears & Roebuck catalogs, sack-feed dresses, tin can pin curls, homemade everything. Sacrifice with a sense of humor and love of family. It tells a story we all need to hear. J.A.S.
