New book recalls an island childhood
Victoria Farnsworth’s new book, “Welcome Aboard,” is the first in a series of books about the life of the author, and relates her first eight years of life growing up on Bainbridge Island.
The book gives a glimpse of rural life during the 1950s as seen through the eyes of a young child.
Historical events, such as the opening of Wilkes School when she was 6, as well as Farnsworth’s relationships with her immediate and extended family are documented through a series of fun, entertaining stories about childhood staples such as learning to swim, going trick-or-treating and the joys of Christmas.
The narrative calls the reader back to a simpler time, when family came first and the hectic lifestyles of today could not even have been imagined.
“Welcome Aboard” is currently available at www.createspace.com/4602165 for the price of $7.95. Farnsworth now resides in the mountains in Arizona.
