Sort of a biography of the author's husband from the 1940s and 1950s. This is a large print edition.
This was a very good book as all of Giles have been. It is how Hod and Mary met and married and their beginning years together first in the city where Mary had lived and worked then the move to the hill country in Kentucky.Part fiction part true,I have loved all their books abt. the people and ways of Piney Ridge and surrounding 'hollars & ridges'.
It isn't a syrupy romance novel. The ending was very touching and brought me back to what really matters. While there is a rightful place for money and the material possessions money buys, in and of themselves they do not make for contentment and true happiness. A richness of relationships with God, family and faithful friends are are one part of the recipe for true happiness. Another part is fulfilling work and time to enjoy the blessings of nature. The best things in life aren't free, but require diligent work. Even so, they are simple and do not force a person to go faster than the speed of thought. Today's hectic pace has caused people to lose touch with life's true treasures, which we definitely need to rediscover. "The Enduring Hills" helps one to do just that. I love to write and read well written poetry. Much of the author's writing style reminds me of well written poetry.
