The memoirs of a "farm girl" from rural Maryland who married, moved to Haddonfield, New Jersey, raised four children, was honored for her contributions to the community, and lived "a fortunate life."
As a young girl living on a farm in Maryland, Mary Janice Divers never imagined that most of her adult life, as Jan Twitchell, would be spent in Haddonfield, New Jersey, that she would travel extensively in the United States and overseas, that she would fall in love with the land and lakes of New Hampshire, that she would derive so much satisfaction from serving as a volunteer in Haddonfield, or that she would be honored by that community for her service. “When I look back over the ninety years recorded herein,” she writes in the foreword, “I am truly amazed that a farm girl from rural Maryland could have had such good fortune.”

She met Bob Twitchell, a student at Lafayette College, while working as a counselor at Lochearn Camp for Girls in Vermont. They married in 1951 and settled in Haddonfield, New Jersey, Bob's hometown. Active in community and civic affairs, Bob and Jan were each named, in their own right, Haddonfield Citizen of the Year – Bob in 1981, Jan in 2002. Bob died in 2013 at age 90. Jan lives at Brandywine Haddonfield. This is her first book.
