NEW RELEASE - "Through the Eyes of Mary" published by Chocolate River Publishing  from (Riverview, NB). This condensed daily journal portrays a personal account of life from the 1920's to 1950's in a rural Canadian community.
Readers will feel involved in the community as residents socialize, take part in political events such as prohibition, or assist each other in times of need.  Mayme, as she is known locally, shows how her community participates in the World War II effort at home, details how industrialization brings new and positive things to the community where she lives. Electricity, wringer washers and small appliances, in-house running water, and the automobile create a stir of excitement for Mary and her neighbours. Step back to 1920, put on comfortable footware, and walk along with Mary.
