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.


Knee Replacement
imageOne of this summer’s experiences was helping husband Chip get through knee replacement surgery. After limping for several years trying to ignore pain, he finally scheduled surgery for August. Dr. David Muron with Riverside Walter Reed Hospital was the surgeon.


A Good Summer
There is a new cool breeze off the Rappahannock. A few leaves are falling in the yard. The hot summer is passing and autumn is in the air. It was a good summer in spite of troubles. We count blessings and feel so fortunate to live in beautiful Middlesex County.


History of a House
imageIt was fortunate that I talked to the previous owner, Christian Willaford, about the history of our home, “RiverView” (I call it the “Pineapple Palace”), before he died of cancer last year. He shared information on this place that otherwise might have been lost forever.


Epiphany at Christ Church
…an elderly man tenderly held the hand of his ailing wife as he led her back to her seat after communion. He was grey-haired, dressed simply in summer garb, as was his wife, and I could see in a glance that they had been married many years and that they shared a long life of deep love and commitment to each other. I was struck with the beauty of this sight as I looked up into his face and saw such an expression of love and devotion.
