Mar 31, 2022

Recent release “If You Would Have Asked Me!” from Covenant Books author Edna May Clemons is a gripping tale of a young black girl growing up in the South whose enjoyment was not dimmed by the trials and tribulations of Southern living.

Edna May Clemons, proud family matriarch with a career of nearly four decades in nursing, has completed her new book, “If You Would Have Asked Me!”:  a gripping tale capturing the innocence of children.

In an excerpt from her book, Clemons shares, “Growing up in the farm, I could run in the grass barefoot. I was happy, but this is all I know—we all, to me anyway, were happy. We invented games and things to play with. My first doll was the ear of corn when it has silk. My doll’s hair was the silkiest. I used my fingers as my comb. The summer is my favorite time, except Thanksgivings and Christmas when you had to wear shoes.”

Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Edna May Clemons’ new book offers an innocent child’s perspective as she embraces her family and life on the farm she was raised on, even through the southern riots and bigotry surrounding her.

Readers can purchase “If You Would Have Asked Me!” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
