Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY is a delightful collection of easy-to-read essays by Wilmoth Foreman about the ups, downs, and in-betweens of life as viewed from a back yard swing in the South. Originally published as newspaper columns, the diverse selections are chosen from nearly fifteen years of popular writings. Subjects range from those as playful as accessorizing and gift-wrapping to empathetic interviews with war veterans to the hilarious frustrations and delicious rewards of gardening, groundhog included. Music and pets are oft-visited topics. Like Foreman's published fiction, this collection is rich in gentle humor, down-home nostalgia, occasional serious ponderings, and quirky characters. Whether read cover-to-cover or ten minutes at a time, its varied look at everyday existence is life affirming and uplifting.
