Published by Xlibris
Winnifred “Winnie” Emmons, while working at the local diner, is about to cross paths with a man whose life has been turned upside down by the tragic death of his wife and mother of his four children. Little does he know that the precision with which this young woman can clean, cook, can, and garden will one day influence the lives of his little darlings. Love at First Sight is a compilation of stories that tell of the love that grew between a grieving widower and his young bride and, most of all, tell of the love that grew and was demonstrated in the care and nurturing of his precious children. This book was inspired during the last days of this heroine’s life as she began to pass out of reality’s grasp and into the arms of Alzheimer’s. Her oldest daughter, now her caregiver, trying to hold on a little longer to the moments of this angel’s life, began writing a tribute to her, which soon became this book.
Winnifred was twenty-three when she married George Johnsen. She was full of life and joy and bursting at the seams to care for her new family. She devoted every hour of her day into keeping her home spotless and organized, filled with the fragrance of homemade breads, fresh jams, jellies, and pickles. She hung out lines of wash until they were crisped by the sun. She ironed pillowcases and curtains until they could stand on their own. She put the same energy into her children, keeping them bathed, clean, and curled, lovingly disciplining and teaching them, bringing them into adulthood with a firm hand but always with love. Four children were a handful, but from the first time she saw them, it was love at first sight.
