Betsy at Medayto, a new book by Julianne Johnson, is a photographic remembrance of her mother's life at Lake Medayto. This is a warm chronicle of a very special person and place.
Many people can relate to a unique place from their childhood. In some families, generations return to the same summer cottage or winter getaway house, creating a history all their own. Such is the case in Julianne Johnson's moving memoir, Betsy at Medayto.
The real Betsy is Johnson's mother, captured in photographs and stories. The reader follows Betsy as she rows on the lake, travels the leafy paths and buys vegetables from a horse drawn wagon, all in the area called "green water" or Medayto. Johnson collected all the details from her 85-year-old mother and included photographs of the area to impart additional magic to the story.
This is a charming book for any family that has passed traditions down through generations. Beautifully written and warmly told, Betsy at Medayto truly captures the joy of life's simple pleasures. It is sure to inspire countless readers to dig through their own collections of photographs and make their own memory books, as well.
