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.


A Winter’s Rest
imageWhat a winter . . . not necessarily a rest but some time off from writing, at least. Christmas holidays were exhausting this year as we were traveling, then the frigid weather in January and February seemed to be worse than usual.


Road to Paradise
Going to Paradise is fine except for one thing. Getting there. Travel in today’s world is not for the aged or faint of heart. For one thing, it’s hard to get up at 5 a.m. in the morning to drive to the airport two hours ahead of a flight as is required these days, and even harder to arrange for printing out boarding passes, checking luggage, and getting through security.


Holy Cats!
imageUrbanna has a problem with feral cats. They live in the ravines that spread through the village like tentacles, offering perfect, wild cover for cat colonies. If one walks through the village at night, one is treated to a variety of cats out on an evening prowl.


Town and county
It’s been a busy fall in town and county. The season started on Labor Day with a visit from daughter Liz, and her children Hayden and Walker. Liz has moved from Baltimore to Lexington, Kentucky, this year to head the Blue Grass Conservancy, a group that places horse farms in trust to preserve rural lands forever.
