Remembering Strawberry Fields: A Memoir
Mary E. Matury Gibson’s debut memoir depicts the life of a first-generation American coming of age in a small rural town. In a world before the Beatles and the computer age life was very different. It was a time of innocence before history would form us and affect us in ways we could have never imagined.
