Summary

‘Myrtlisms’ abound in this historical commentary of farm life. Myrtle’s love of home and passion for family and friends gathered under her roof comprise the primary source of anecdotes for this chronological narrative. A remarkable life is recorded in the set of a dozen five year diaries she kept. As Myrtle might say regarding well-aged food in the ‘icebox’, these old diaries ‘needed using’. With biographical interpretation by their daughter, Myrtle and her husband Roy’s rural reality comes to life, bringing the past to the present for better viewing, smelling, tasting, touching and hearing. It’s as if we can just call them on their old wooden phone and exclaim (as Myrtle often has) “Well, you’re home!”
