0 Reviews
Edith Black Winslow devoted her life to being a wife, a mother and a citizen. She was an inspiration and a blessing to her family, to her friends, and to her state - Texas. Her book, IN THOSE DAYS, is fitting for her vivid story of the time she lived in Menard County. Her spirit will shine on in the history of Texas told in this work with her husband and family each day of her life. She wrote not for herself, but of her home, her loved ones, and her dreams for them.
