Treasure Chest

by Joann Klusmeyer

About The Book

The knowledge had come to her a long time ago.  It was deposited in her mind, placed as carefully as an eagle places her egg in a nest made of thorns and sticks, but lined with fluff, and the idea must lay hidden but must remain as alive as a chick within the egg.

Laura knew the time would come that she would leave the place of her birth, as the eaglet leaves the nest, but the time was not yet.  There were plans to make and birthdays to pass through. Even the baby eaglet cannot fly until wings are grown.  Laura had promised herself she would have wings.

Angels 734 and 942 could have told her she would wings strong enough to carry many others with her as she ‘took flight.

About The Author

Joann was born in the mountains of Arkansas in 1933, in the height of the depression, into the family of a pioneer minister. She was attracted to pencils and paper from the time she learned not to poke pencils in her eyes, and that paper did not taste particularly good.

Having an older sister who aspired to be a school teacher, she became a class of one and was expected to master reading at a very early age. Books became the magic that would transport her into another life, and she read and re-read the few that were available until they were limp scraps. It was about then that more stories began to develop within her own head, along with simple rhyming verses. This book is one of the stories.

Her father’s occupation as a minister, by necessity, put her in church several times a week, where she practically cut her teeth on a church bench, so to speak. There was the small country church that her father built and pastored for years, and later the other churches where he was called, and in that way, she became uniquely positioned to meet a lot of people on a regular basis, and appreciate the hard-working settlers who pioneered the land in America’s midwest.
