Wayne Avenue Days - A Midcentury Memoir
by Linda S. Arroyo
Publisher - SBPRA
Category - Autobiography & Biography
Born in 1950, Linda Sue Hoyt grew up in an extended family home on the fringes of a little town that was rapidly evolving. The community’s planned neighborhoods were filled with new starter homes, but her end of town was behind the curve and locked in the 1940s, with older technology and more traditional values still in evidence. The patriotic spirit in this innocent age preceded the rebellious 1960s and ‘70s. Tracing dreams and adventures, the author transports readers to her rustic realm of childhood experience, rejuvenating characters with sprinkles of humor and meticulous attention to detail. Fond memories of relationships, hardships, tragedies, and triumphs frame the stories of Wayne Avenue Days. Enduring memories are fondly sculpted, as L.S.A. Hoyt reflects on the lives and influences of family, friends, and ancestors in her beloved winding, wooded Wayne Avenue during those wonderful mid-century days.
