What does it mean to be “Mountain Strong”?

“What would you do if you had no home and no family? Where would you turn if every road ended at a brick wall? Sarah Bishop Hart, a small, gentlewoman from the hills of Southwest, Virginia was born into a world without hope. When she was five years old, her father her out to a family she had never met. From that day, Sarah never knew a real home or what it is like to have a true family. She ate from table scraps, slept in outbuildings, and never felt welcome – no matter where she was. She lived with on fiercely held desire – to have a home of her own. When she married the man of her dreams – a half-breed with secrets of his own – Sarah thought she had realized her fantasy. Little did she know her troubles were just beginning.

Keepsakes of the Heart sets the life in Sarah Bishop Hart against the mountains and the coal minds, The Great Depression and two World Wars, the women’s movement, and other upheavals of the twentieth century. Sarah’s simple mountain philosophy offers a lesson to anyone who has ever thought about giving up. “You can be anything you want. You just got to be tough as an old pine. Trust God to take care of you. And keep the good things in your heart. Pull them out to keep you going when things get bad.”

Join me in a fun and descriptive conversation with Amelia Townsend, author of Keepsakes of the Heart at Amelia is more than an author. She has worked as a television news reporter, writer, and freelance producer/director. Most recently Amelia has founded Shoestring Theatre Company, a wonderful community theater in Fairfax Virginia. She like Sarah Bishop Hart is resilient or in the vernacular of Southwest, Virginia is “Mountain Strong”!
