"Thirty-Six Years Later. . ." is the sequel to Martha Curtis' first book, "Bits and Pieces", when as a young house-wife and mother of three, she hit upon a project to chronicle a year in her family's life. The year was 1970. In 2006, Double Edge Press asked her to do a follow-up in the same autobiographical journal style. She was now Martha Dougherty, had grandchildren, and her children were now middle-aged and facing many of the same challenges she herself went through. What words of wisdom would she have to share with them and a whole new generation? Many of the elements that made her original book a classic read are still evident: the optimism, the simplicity, her faith in God to get her through. Her day to day schedule is surprisingly even more active than her first very busy writing nearly four decades earlier. What does a 'retired' woman in her seventies do? Find out as you fly with Martha to Vegas and Maine, take road-trips through neighboring states, show in art festivals and run a photography business and an internet site for her work. In between this she somehow finds time to run a household, entertain, go to church, attend weddings and, sadly, funerals, all while being a wife, a mother, a grandmother, and becoming a great-grandmother. Join her on an entertaining and thoughtful journey that reminds us all of the importance of pursuing hopes and dreams no matter what your age.
