Everyone knows that I love to read. One of my all time favorite authors, and one from Nebraska is Bess Streeter Aldrich. She was born in Iowa, but moved to Nebraska as a new wife. After her husbands early death, and needed a way to support her family she turned to writing. She mainly wrote fiction, and some of that fiction was based on her own parents and grandparents experiences. They often had a tinge of romance, but there was also death and how people dealt with it.
do own all her books, most of them are paperback reprints from the
University of Nebraska Press. However, this year for my birthday, a
friend gave me a first edition with a dust jacket of A Lantern in Her Hand. Which was also the One Book One Nebraska a couple years ago. I was so excited to have gotten it!
