Kyle Kelly is a talented author who is making a name for himself with his first published novel, A Memory of Trees. The story is a sequel to The View from South Emporia Street, the next book to be published by Kelly. Both novels provide an engrossing, heart warming trip to the magical world of childhood and adolescence in the 1940’s and 50’s, as experienced by the central character Cimarron McNeill. Read them if you wish to leave the present day Celebrity Culture, media circus, and modern political insanity behind. Return to a simpler, less complicated time in America, the middle of the twentieth century, when life was full of hope and glory, when friends and enemies were easy to recognize, a time when the American Dream was still alive and attainable with hard work and patriotic goals, when success meant more than just money and power.
