($10.00) ISBN: 978-1-4349-0004-3, paperback
This autobiography chronicles the experiences of a family bonded by music, travel, and their steadfast love for each other.
Annette Button's childhood was anything but ordinary. Born from musical parents, Annette was destined for a musical career and enjoyed the opportunities their adventurous lifestyle afforded her. A musical family, Annette's autobiography begins at the age of ten and chronicles her unique life up to present day.
Annette's incredible journey included such experiences as innkeepers of the Burston Inn in England to proud owners of a yacht named Roaming Melody, which voyaged the vast seas of Europe and toted the Smith family from country to country as a successful musical act. They encountered change, challenge, adventure, danger, and trauma as well as excitement. Most importantly, they upheld a family whose bond was steadfast and never broken.
Through their love of music, travel, and one another, Annette and her family take you on an incredible expedition through the ever-changing ebbs and flows on the vast sea of life.

When I Was Growing Up
($14.00) ISBN: 978-1-4349-0029-6, paperback
This nostalgic book shares a lively and engaging account of how American life has changed over the years.
New England in the 1920s and '30s was, like the rest of America, in the grips of the Great Depression. As a young child and a member of what would come to be known as "the greatest generation," Harold Keith was, for the most part, blissfully unaware of this.
Protected by his parents and nurtured by the greater community of Easton, Massachusetts, the author recalls his childhood experiences as less complicated and more structured, simpler, and happier than those of later generations. Without many modern conveniences and luxuries now taken for granted, both children and adults worked harder and appreciated what that work achieved. By necessity, life moved at a slower pace and children found creative ways to provide their own entertainment.
When I Was Growing Up is a lively and engaging account of how American life has changed over the years, and the comparisons drawn give the reader cause to reflect on both what we have gained and what has been lost in the process.
About the Author
Harold Keith is a native of Massachusetts and a longtime resident of New York State. He served in the United States Navy during World War II and is now retired. Together with his wife, Mary, he raised two children, Karen and Michael.
