“My Friend, Mrs. Browne”: a lighthearted tale told from the perspective of a young girl that highlights the cross-generational and intergenerational connections between people. “My Friend, Mrs. Browne” is the creation of published author Joyce Holmes, a home school granny, a graduate of Oregon State University and a fifth generation descendant of Oregon Tail pioneers. She delights in creating playful, inspirational and instructive books for her grandchildren and other little ones.

Holmes shares, “My Friend, Mrs. Browne is a story of faith, family, and community as seen through the eyes of a young girl. This story is condensed from a twenty-five-year friendship that began with a young college-aged couple (who became a family) and a sixty-year-old widow who became their spiritual mother. It joyfully explores how each generation can minister to one another through simple acts of hospitality, service, and prayer, while not ignoring the tensions of the health and economic concerns of the elderly. It is a celebration of cross-generational and intergenerational relationships.

“Come in. Meet my friend Mrs. Browne, and enter into her circle of love and light…for eternity.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Joyce Holmes’s new book is a fun and beautiful read that draws the young readers into a profound story, paralleled with illustrations, that highlights relationships across multiple generations.
