Rivah Visitor's Guide

One Woman's Opinion

Order Mary Buxton’s books
imageLife 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.


Pride of Middlesex
imageThis 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.


Grandmother’s Advice
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.

La La Land, Part 4
Urbanna, Va.— This year’s discovery of the pen came to me while vacationing in Florida, or what I refer to as “La La Land.” I learned that La La Land is many things to many people. It is not just my escape to Florida each year; it is belief in escape or fantasy. Going off to La La Land is what forever attracts, if only because of the very human tendency to believe in fairy tales.
