Winchester, VA Authors Publish New Book

January 07, 2012   Entertainment News
(PRLEAP.COM) New Lives For Old, a new book by Fenton & Evelyn Babcock, has been released by RoseDog Books.

Fenton & Evelyn Babcock, the two authors of this book, drew upon their respective strong roots in New England, on the West Coast, and in Virginia, and as a result of personal experiences, the couple was able to describe in detail careers in the fields of education and national intelligence.

In each case, family responsibilities caused them to focus their planning upon the opportunity to develop a new life for themselves in a life care community. As neighbors at Shenandoah Valley Westminster-Canterbury, Fenton & Evelyn developed a relationship that helped them through the loss of their respective spouses. That relationship blossomed further through closely working together in music and other activities in the community. Marriage soon followed, and warmth fostered a whole new dimension in their lives. The two have strengthened that relationship over the past four years through the publishing of two books, and overcoming physical setbacks.
