One Woman's Opinion
Order Mary Buxton’s books
Life and love in the rural tidewater area of Virginia is a common thread that runs through nearly all of Mary Wakefield Buxton's books. The push and pull of old and new, North and South, man and woman, life and death, are discovered, illuminated and reflected upon in each of them. Such is the heart and soul of a writer.

I recently had the chance to read the writings of German Lutheran theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer written from a Nazi prison just before his execution in 1945. It’s one of those must read works that leaves the reader profoundly moved.

What a grand lady was Ruby Lee. A retired school teacher, a proud graduate of Mary Washington University and longtime member of the board of trustees, Ruby Lee was one strongly opinionated lady full of spunk and class. Age never seemed to show on Ruby Lee. She was always beautiful. I always thought she looked as if she had just stepped out of Glamour magazine.

It’s getting to be that time again and I’m scared. April 15, tax time, is just around the corner. I’m surrounded with estate planning lawyers now that my son, Wake, and his wife, Lori, have returned home to the area, but I still managed to make a big mistake last year with my finances.
