Robert B. Brown is a widowed great-grandfather who was raised on his grandparents’ New York farm. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Georgetown University and a masters from George Mason University, served in the US Army in Korea, was married to his late wife for fifty years, and enjoyed a long career in federal service in Washington, DC until his retirement. Robert has published his new book “A Farm Boy in the Rain: Personal Remembrances- An Epic Memoir”: a spellbinding and beautifully written true story of perseverance and gratitude.

“A Farm Boy in the Rain” is Robert Brown’s uplifting memoir of a poor farm boy who stood in the rain weeping at the hand fortune had dealt him, but who actually went on to have an interesting and fruitful life. It is a true story of how he met and overcame many daunting challenges in his life including devastating blindness. It is a story of the many people he met and worked with over the years, what he saw, and what he accomplished.

Robert wrote this book from memory while in his eighties, being totally blind for over thirty years. The story starts with a description of his childhood years. As a child he witnessed the death of a beloved grandparent and the destruction of his family, agonizing sickness, and finally rescue. Throughout the book, he tries to show how miracles always accompanied the events in his life. He describes in detail what he saw and heard in those years, that slipped by rapidly — the years of economic depression, World War II, the fifties, the sixties, and all the remaining decades of the twentieth century. “A Farm Boy in the Rain” is an uplifting story of determination and perseverance.
