Fresh Eggs: A Western Maryland Childhood
Fresh Eggs is a memoir of childhood experiences in a vibrant small town in western Maryland. This locale provided a carefree playground for the youthful adventures of Alice Lorraine Faith. This book recounts a journey back in time when life was uncomplicated and lighthearted. The narrative describes the modest lifestyle and humble home of her unpretentious youth. With her brothers and favorite cousin, Alice shared an active childhood and filled days of every season with self-generated amusement and exploration. She engages readers in a personal exploration of self-actualization and fulfillment. She discovers new insights about the people and events around her, and she develops a deeper understanding and appreciation of her parents. The story is a cathartic process as she recounts joyful times and confronts poignant relationships during a formative period of life. These family experiences, especially relationships with her emotionally distant father, have a profound impact on shaping the woman that she becomes in adulthood. Alice was motivated to give back to her community and to leave an enduring personal legacy.
