I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed this memoir. It just thrilled me! Of course, I love books that follow the seasons and are full of daily happenings. This is that and so much more...Tabor has such a SIMPLE, beautiful way with words as she shares of life alone on her farm, Stillmeadow. Isn't that a BEAUTIFUL name for a farm?! I want to name a farm that! This is my first Tabor title and now I'm hooked. I see now that this is a newer piece of hers and there are many more books about Stillmeadow ...more

This is a old book, old author...reading Taber is like reading a long letter from an old friend. Here she takes each month of living in old colonial house in Connecticut where she had reared a family, raised Cockers and Irish Setters, and lived a writing life. The pages are gentle views of slower times...

Just like I remember the other Stillmeadows I read thirty years ago...quiet, nostalgic, soothing, and cozy. Just the perfect book to relax with at night during this bitterly cold winter week that we've been having.

I was introduced to Gladys Taber's books years ago when I was a young pastor's wife with a couple of children. One of our church members who was about the age I am now had lost her husband years before and had three grown and married children. She was a reader, and somehow we got to t

A nonfiction year-long "journal" of life in an old house in Connecticut, this book is beautifully written, and there are astute observations and thoughts about nature, family, dogs, children, friendships, and life in general interwoven with a book of days type commentary. Recipes are tucked in, as are book recommendations. I really enjoyed the back to nature philosophies and old-fashioned values heralded by the author and through her writings I felt I had known her all my life.

I enjoyed the description of country life at Stillmeadow. It made me want to learn how to live by the seasons a bit more. We often think of the "old day" as more difficult and labor intensive, and I believe they were in many ways. However, Gladys Taber points out that we have adopted stressful busy lives and lost the rhythm of labor and rest that came while living by the seasons.

An applewood fire, milk glass, cocker spaniels, a trip to the dump......a few of her favorite things! Wonderful and wise Gladys Taber.....I wish I could have visited you and Jill (Eleanor) at Stillmeadow!

This is a wonderful book for sitting and relaxing on a cold rainy day. Not a gardening book, which I thought it was, but a simple read about life and friends (including animals).
