Description

The Rivers Bend is the journey of a small town Wisconsin girl who reads her way through her bedridden childhood illness during the Depression; gets discovered on the train to California while visiting the man she loves; detours to post-war New York where she becomes a successful model; rubs shoulders with the rich, famous and political including JFK; marries and becomes a typical 1950s housewife; moves to the suburbs to raise her children in the safety of Cold-War suburbia, and comes full circle back to Mayville, Wisconsin where today she runs a charming Bed and Breakfast. Hers is a story of relationships: her close and loving bonds with her grandfather, mother and brother; her lifelong love for her Mayville sweetheart; her deep friendship with model Gloria Emerson, her sidekick in the New York social scene who eventually becomes a war correspondent and outspoken critic of the Vietnam War; her relationship with Jack Kennedy fresh off the PT boat and a political neophyte; her husband, her children, her grandchildren.With an underlying sense of humor, Jayne shares intimate memories of a life that spans major world upheavals, powerful underlying social forces, and navigates through her own personal journey. It is a story that ultimately we all relate to: love found, love lost and love found again.

YUP ladies and gents, phone service is back in service and we are good to go.

During Covd, we had no choice but to stop accepting phone calls.  Now, we can lift that ban and return to our usual service.

Thank you for your understanding.
