CAMEOS: Taking Time to Smell the Roses

Front Cover
Xlibris Corporation, Feb 2, 2011 - Biography & Autobiography - 205 pages
Cameos are “brief writings that bring into delicate or sharp focus the character of a specific person, place, or event.” In her latest book, Barbara Ann Hillman Jones does just that from her own personal experiences. Her cameos are real—she writes about real people, real places, and real happenings. Most of them are centered around her Swedish heritage and of growing up in the predominantly Swedish community of Jamestown, New York. Barbara’s cameos are inspiring and uplifting, and her hope is that the book will bring happy memories and warm feelings to each reader.
