A salad-eating dog, the haunted trunk, a 'possum who drinks coffee-The Blue Box and Memories that Live in the Bones by Sharon Mabry is a collection of stories about Mabry's growing up years in the mountains of East Tennessee, some of the adventures in her 56-year marriage, and her thoughts on retirement after teaching for 52 years at Austin Peay State University. Mabry writes with wit and candor about her mother's declining health and the changes to her family home. Throughout her life, Mabry finds the humor that lives within each moment. The Blue Box and Memories that Live in the Bones is a collection that glimpses into the inner joy that maintains Mabry's dimpled cheeks and smiling eyes. It's a contagious outlook that will inspire readers to find amusement in their own reflections.
