by Candace Simar and Angela F. Foster
These two Minnesota sisters present a collection of poems and essays, embellished with photographs, subtitled Reflections and Impressions. The sisters write, “If you learned to swear in Norwegian or shared a two-holer outhouse with your cousin”, you’ll enjoy the poetry and prose of these sisters.
From memories of Norwegian ancestors and growing up on a Minnesota dairy farm, this book, and these great sisters, will take you back to the days of rural schools, butchering hens, once-a-week baths, “apple pies and mud pies, and cow pies” to the auction of the family farm.
