Woodbridge Author Makes Good
Woodbridge resident Nancy Kyme has published her first book, Memory Lake: The Forever Friendships of Summer, Vantage Point (July 1, 2011), $15.95, ISBN-10: 1936467054. Available in bookstores and Amazon.com.
Nancy tells us that she has lived in the Westridge section of Woodbridge for 18 years. She says she "arrived in 1992 for my husband's 3 year military tour. We fell in love with the area and contrived to stay. Our kids are now adults and my husband is retired. The idea for a book about camp's influence on my adult life had been percolating when the kids were young. When they left for college, I found time to complete it. Vantage Point Books offered me a contract last year.
A book signing for Memory Lake is scheduled for Saturday, August 27th at Barnes & Noble at 8117 Sudley Road, at the Westgate Plaza from 1-3:00.
Nancy Kyme, Author of Memory Lake.
This is from the book's back cover:
A Mother's Remembrance...
Summer Camp. These two words have been known to inspire many things in the hearts of young girls and prospective campers- from fear, loneliness and anxiety, to joy, freedom, and lessons learned that will last a lifetime. Relive those moments in this richly told memoir of the author's own transformative experiences at a summer camp on the shores of Lake Michigan near Sleeping Bear Dunes.
A Daughter's Journey...
Told in flashbacks as Nancy drives to a camp reunion with her own daughter and her two teenage friends, memories unfold, taking the reader on an unforgettable journey back to the idyllic setting of the camp. In these humorous and at times harrowing adventures, Nancy realizes the power of female friendship can last a lifetime- in fact, it can change the form and direction of your entire life.
Anyone who ever attended summer camp will relate to this charming novel, and for those who have not, as you turn the last, heart-warming page, you'll feel as if you have.
Welcome back to Memory Lake.
