100 Days of Memoirs to Nourish the Soul

DAY 50: May 10, 2020


by Barbara Thompson

Outside the sleepy hamlet of Hespeler (Cambridge), Ontario sits a wee valley locals call Beaverdale. It is there on "The Pond" at Fisher's Mill that "Little Barbie" finds childhood adventure, witnesses adult hi-jinks, and learns about life and the need for love.

BeaverTales is a mix of young and old, reliving the past in a child's eyes only the adult in Barbara can fully appreciate now. The memoir covers Barbara's time on Beaverdale Road from 1964 to 1974 with her dear parents, Mona & Leigh Thompson, and their many friends and family.

Join her as she heads back to a more innocent time...

Yearning for Magic
