About the Book

From milking cows on the farm in Iowa to picking up mermaid’s purses on the beach in Massachusetts, Cornfields to Codfish celebrates the Midwest and New England via short personal essays. “Whatever subject Linda’s pen illuminates, I am drawn in, left a bit wiser, and shown how the contemplated facets of life leaves one more appreciative of them.” — Lily Yamamoto, Senior designer and President, LMY Graphic Design Studio “A gentle, life-affirming journey of exploration and discovery. Malcolm treats the reader with respect, humor, and bonhomie!” — Sally M. Chetwynd, author of The Sturgeon’s Dance and Bead of Sand “My grandparents farmed in Iowa and Nebraska, and as a child, I experienced dirt under my fingernails and a farmer’s tan. Linda’s writing brings back those memories.” — Jacque Stouffer, English teacher, Iowan at heart, transplanted to Wyoming “Through a creative lens, Linda writes relatable essays on so many levels: family, travel, humor, sentiment, food, and, above all, Human Being.” — Colleen Getty, writer & Founder, The Room to Write
