“My father visited me once, in a dream when I was 50. In the dream I was standing on the river bar, barefooted…..He came up behind me, on my right. I didn’t turn. I knew who it was and I knew he was wearing shoes, street shoes, on the river bar.”  

And so begins A BIT OF EARTH, Wendy’s latest book. It is a compilation of her weekly columns in the Ferndale Enterprise. She wrote them for 15 years and the stories are a reflection of her big life. Full of Love, Humor, Irony and Reflection of rural and city landscapes. Hard times and Happy times. Starting up and starting over.
