Hickory Goes To Heaven

191 pages2 hours


Living to age 100 with humor and style takes faith and courage.  Alyce Hicks Perez was blessed with both.

In her first memoir entitled  LOVE HICKORY: "A Southern Lady Prevails at 99", we saw her manage the Great Depression, her marriage to her beloved Rappy, then World War II, the highs and lows of raising 11 children, and ending the book as she turned fifty.

Here in Part Two, "Hickory" spends the autumn of her years with Rappy in retirement.  After his death she perserveres another sixteen years on her own with faith, humor, and endless curiosity of embracing life. 

Indeed, she is a glorious example of what newsman Tom Brokaw calls "The Greatest Generation."
