Newcomer writes third book of her 'Precious Memories'

July 16, 2006|by TIFFANY ARNOLD

It wasn't long after the Newcomers arrived in Athens that they started making their way to Mars Hill, the place in the Bible where Paul preached to the Greeks.

Eight hours later, Catherine Reese Newcomer wrote, they were in Cairo amid festive Ramadan ceremonies. They didn't reach their hotel until 11 p.m.

That was only the beginning of the Newcomer's tour through the Holy Lands, one of many trips Catherine and her husband Charles Newcomer recounted in the book they co-authored, "Precious Memories (A New Life)."

The self-published book, released in May, is the third in the autobiographical "Precious Memories" series, which started in 1998 with Catherine Reese Newcomer's account the Great Depression in rural Boonsboro. The most recent installment recaps Catherine's life after she married Charles Newcomer in 1983. The couple lives in Washington County, west of Cascade.
