This week’s Inheritance Books are from T. Michelle Nelson. Hi Michelle (or should I call you T?), welcome to the blog. Tell me a bit about yourself.
I was raised in Benton, KY and graduated from Murray State University with a degree in Education. Later I moved to Mount Vernon, Ohio where I now live with my family and two ill-behaved dogs. When I’m not writing, I’m usually sleeping or working on fixing up a 100-year old house I bought here in this lovely town I now call home.
Which book have you inherited from the generation above? Why is it special?
The first book that I ever read was one called The Chosen Baby. It’s about a child that was adopted. My mother purchased this book and kept it until I was old enough to begin to understand exactly how special I was to her and my father (I was adopted at six weeks old). This book will forever be one of the most important and sentimental pieces of literature to me personally.
Which book would you like to leave to future generations? Why?
That’s incredibly tough, but I think the one book that spoke to me more than another other book was Margaret Mitchell’s Gone with the Wind.
I haven’t read either of those books, but The Chose Baby sounds fascinating. I’ll have to go look it up.
Thank you so much for sharing your Inheritance Books with us, Michelle. Have a lovely weekend.
