Brownes are made of sturdy stock – Memory House

Seeing the relaxed smile on the girl’s face, Ophelia says, “The stew should be done by now.” She rises from her chair, stirs the mixture once more time and then fills both bowls.

After a single mouthful Annie declares the stew delicious. “Is this lamb I taste?”

“Afraid not.” Ophelia laughs. “It’s the herbs and vegetables from my garden.”

Annie looks up wide-eyed. With her spoon stalled halfway to her mouth, she gasps. “You have a garden?”

“Of course. Why wouldn’t I?”

Struggling with such a thought, Annie says, “But isn’t it rather strenuous for a woman your age? Bending down, digging in the dirt?”

“I’m a Browne,” Ophelia replies. “Brownes are made of sturdy stock.”

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
