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.
Tea with Mary

04.22.2009Pride of Middlesex
This Saturday is what I consider to be one of the happiest events of the year, presentation of the Pride of Middlesex award, when many citizens come together over dinner and celebrate some of our truly special citizens. This year’s recipients are sisters Ruby Lee Norris and Rachel Bridger.
As Easter approaches it is time to be grateful for the many blessings of life. One for me is memories of Grandmother Wakefield in the 1940s. She always had good advice to share with me.
