Return of Old Maine Woman

Finalist, 2015 New England Society Book Award


The Old Maine Woman returns with her customary combination of sass, insight, and nostalgia in a host of new essays that shed their own particular light on the quandaries of being female, growing up, getting married, and getting older as a woman in the northern parts of the state.

The twinkling eyes of Glenna Johnson Smith don’t miss much, a skill that served her well when she was a seventh and eighth grade teacher, and also allow her to capture the deeper meaning beneath life’s seemingly mundane moments. Filled with grace, humor, and fortitude, Return of Old Maine Woman will captivate the reader with its straightforward observations and heartwarming outlook. For anyone who has longed to hear the insight of a relative that has seen something of this life, Return of Old Maine Woman will fill that role, and more. Join Glenna Johnson Smith in this lovely and engaging book, as she recounts what she has taught and what she has learned during the better part a century well-lived.
