    1. Mary Jane Auch also writes as MJ Auch.The thought of becoming a writer never occurred to MJ Auch as a child Her only literary efforts in those days were the plays which she and her girlfriend, Noreen, wrote for their marionettes They produced these extravaganzas in Noreen s garage and organized the neighborhood boys into a sales force to sell tickets and refreshments.Summer visits to both of MJ s grandmothers led to her fascination with chickens One grandmother had a small backyard flock and the other grandmother and two bachelor uncles had a large farm that supplied eggs to half of Long Island MJ learned that a flock of chickens had almost the same range of personalities that could be found in a classroom, from the quiet, shy chicken to the big bully.MJ loved books and read constantly She wrote stories, drawn in comic book style with speech balloons for the dialog Her interest in drawing continued through high school, and she went on to become an art major at Skid College After graduation, MJ headed for New York City to seek fame and fortune, but after a year of designing prints for men s pajamas, she decided she wanted to do something meaningful with her life She enrolled in the Occupational Therapy program at Columbia University, which led to some wonderful years of working in a children s hospital near Hartford, Connecticut.On a brief stop home to visit her parents before transferring to a new job in Denver, she met Herm Auch, a graphic artist and editorial cartoonist for the Rochester newspaper It was love at first sight, and MJ never made it to Denver They were married in 1967 and within a few years had produced a daughter, Katrin and a son, Ian They moved from the city to a small farm, complete with chickens, ducks, and geese Armed with a huge collection of Mother Earth News and absolutely no practical experience, they tackled farm life with gusto, gaining much comedy material for books MJ s future books.As the children grew older, MJ began to look for work in her original field of art Like Jenna s mother in Mom Is Dating Weird Wayne, she had a brief stint as a zit zapper at a school picture factory Then she started illustrating for Pennywhistle Press, a national children s newspaper, and this sparked her interest in illustrating children s books.In the summer of 1984, MJ took a week long children s writing conference on Cape Cod She tried to write a picture book manuscript to take to the conference, but instead found herself writing a middle grade novel When her instructor, Natalie Babbitt, told of starting out as an artist and finding she could paint better pictures with words, something clicked MJ finally knew that she wanted to a writer.She started sending manuscripts to publishers, writing four full length novels before she sold the first one Then she sold a second book to another publisher that same week It had taken two years and thirteen rejections, but MJ had finally reached her goal mShe continued writing books for older kids and abandoned her dream of illustrating for a while Then, after nine books, she wrote and illustrated The Easter Egg Farm This set in motion a series of picture books featuring poultry involved in the arts.The Auchs have now become a family of artists Their children are grown and pursuing art careers of their own Kat, a graphic artist, is now working as Associate Art Director for Scrapbook Answers Magazine in San Francisco Ian has been a graphic artist and 3 D animator and is now Assistant New Media Editor for the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle newspaper Ian is also a metal artist and created the chicken sized beauty parlor chair for b Beauty and the Beaks 1918127 Beaut

    2. THE ROAD HOME is a most suitable conclusion to the Remembrance "Mem" Nye Trilogy. Mem turns 13 years of age in this book, and she has her hands full with a difficult younger brother Joshua and 1-year old baby sister Lily. Just when I thought their family couldn't (or shouldn't) unwind further, Mem faces even greater obstacles in the 1817 relative frontier of western New York. One of the hardest realizations Mem comes to (as well as most human beings) is reconciling the love of a parent with the [...]

    3. I absolutely love this series. The author does a great job showing how foolish and weak Mem's father is and you can't rely on anyone but yourself. Mem is a great example of a headstrong woman who learns to take care of herself and her family because she's smart enough to realize that her father won't do it. The author clearly did her research and easily includes many facts throughout the book. I'm so sad it's over! After watching Mem grow up, finishing the book was like saying goodbye to a dear [...]

    4. A perfect ending to this trilogy by Mary Jane Auch. I did not expect the turn of events as Mem travels back to Connecticut, but I love the ending. Family is not just blood relatives.

    5. This is the final book in the series about Mem Nye. Following the death of her mother, Mem's father tells the kids that they will go back to CT. However, there is always something to keep them from getting started. Finally they head back, but Father gets detained in Rome, NY where he joins in the work of building the Erie Canal. He leaves his three children alone in a tavern room from Monday to Sat night, spends that whole night carousing and then sleeps it off on Sun, then back to work. Mem dec [...]

    6. Remembrance Nye is finally returning to the Connecticut home she loves. Her father agreed to return to the family they left behind, and Mem is overjoyed. She plans to become a schoolteacher. However, she is forced to wait, for her father decided on an alternate route: he would work on the Erie Canal, in the process of being built, until he earned some money to buy land in Connecticut. However, after weeks of staying in a crowded tavern run by a fiery redhead named Maude, it becomes clear that Pa [...]

    7. This is the final book about Mem Nye and her family. Mem’s dad left Mem in charge of her younger brother, Joshua, and baby Lily while he works in another town digging the Erie Canal. Mem does her best but it is difficult with no money and living in a run down hotel. On top if this Mem is supposed to work in the kitchen to help pay for their food.Finally Mem has had enough of her father’s neglect and decides to return to Connecticut where her grandmother lives. Mem and her siblings start out [...]

    8. Since her mother's descent into madness and eventual death,thirteen-year-old Mem Nye has been the one to care for her two younger siblings, seven-year-old Joshua and one-year-old Lily. When her father finally admits defeat and sells their New York frontier homestead, with the intention of returning to their old home in Connecticut, Mem believes things will finally get easier. But they only get worse. Her father, a reckless dreamer, halts their journey when it has barely started, so that he can t [...]

    9. I confess that one of the things I like about this book is how pathetic and weak Mem's father proves to be. I had always suspected it in the first two books, but he really shows his true colors here.Mem's mother has died. They have sold the homestead and are travelling back east, where Mem's father has promised her they would return. They stop in a rough and tumble town, where her father finds "temporary" work on the digging of the Erie Canal. It soon becomes clear that he doesn't intend to leav [...]

    10. The first two books of this series were praised by Booklist and Kirkus, Horn Book and Publisher's Weekly to name a few, for their realism and writing. And I agree exceptwell, is it just me or is the dialogue entirely too modern? Don't get me wrong, I liked the book a lot and because of the dialogue found it very accessible and I'm certain the targeted audience will as well. That was probably the point. But from time to time when I was reading I would become aware of it. I'll finish this review l [...]

    11. Remembrance Nye finds the strength to defy her father in order to provide a home for her brother and baby sister. She gets help from an unlikely, and, as far as Mem is concerned, unlikeable ally.
