Lou Tyner, an outdoor enthusiast who lives with her husband on Lake Barkley in western Kentucky and enjoys visits from their three grown sons and their families, boating, eagle watching, hiking, and camping, has completed her book “The Lemonade Prescription: Memories of a Southern Childhood”: an engaging celebration of the landscape, people, and way of life in the Piedmont region of South Carolina in middle of the last century.

Lou shares, “Once upon a time, a childhood didn't include cell phones, texting, email and video games; no instant music, flat irons, silky hair products and malls for every good thing, needed or not.

After the big money crash in 1929, followed by many years of the Great Depression, our community stuck together. The Depression babies arrived all through the thirties and when World War II arrived, jobs were greatly appreciated but young men went off to fight and so many to die.

With the men away at war or working, women joined together to raise the children. An old African saying, it takes a village to raise a child, was recently brought to the fore. This is something I found to be very true during my early years. In fact, it was how our community operated. That's what I found growing up in a small rural southern community centered around church and school.

Everybody looked out for each other and relied on each other. Sometimes being close knit spilled over into a lack of privacy, usually it involved gossip, but mostly tender loving care.
These are the depression years and the war years my parents' generation endured.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Lou Tyner’s book is a deeply personal memoir of an innocent childhood in a close-knit, rural Southern town.
