Return to Calvary
Return to Calvary is a collection of short stories and poems my grandmother hand wrote many years ago prior to her death in 1981. The stories tell of her life and people who made an impact on her while growing up in the early 1900s in a little town on the eastern shore, Crisfield, Maryland. Crisfield holds a special place in my heart and always will.
What our family affectionately refers to as “Calvary” was actually our Aunt Sallie’s home place and in our hearts, it always will be. A place where to this day, Aunt Sallie resides in our family’s gravesite. Return to Calvary has been created to share how different and wonderful growing up in the 1900s in Crisfield really was. There is no doubt that it will be treasured by all who read it.
