Visiting Tom: A Man, a Highway, and the Road to Roughneck Grace by Michael Perry
Today I have the great privilege to be part of the TLC Book Tour for Visiting Tom. Be sure to check out the rest of the tour stops to see what others think of the book!
Mixing down-home stories with a dash if city life, Perry creates the perfect laid-back memoir. There’s something to be said for the slower way of life. I’m certainly not one to go out and grow my own veggies, but I often get nostalgic for the talents that have been lost in my generation. It’s so interesting to hear about how my grandmother grew her produce and made everything from scratch. I have friends who’ve never baked a cake from scratch!
In a time when life moves so quickly and we all suffer from FOMO, this book is the perfect taste of the good ole days. Don’t blame me if you suddenly want to go apple picking or want to start canning tomatoes!
