The Yellow Honeysuckle is the Sweetest


Memories are treasured and precious as the author takes readers back in time to a childhood filled with family love, unique adventures and learning and real life experiences he’ll never forget . 

Each story is presented in different timelines reliving the past and friendships that remained in the present. Chapter 2 talks about the hunt with his stepfather and his friends that yielded him 12 birds and a day to remember. Next, he talks about the partners he had hunting and a special dog named Pepper, and his lifetime friend Marvin who I hope learned to tie his shoes. That friendship is truly special. Herb his duck partner spent many mornings in the swamps and marshes in eastern North Carolina. The author describes a hunt called the tether pole hunt. If you read pages 46-47 you can enjoy the hunt and day with the author and Herb and the mishaps that follow on pages 48-50.

The most fun of the partner’s chapter is when the author is excited that his daughter is now a partner and how when your daughter is your partner he tells how he has another chance to relive his youth and see the excitement he once had. River Road provides memories with his mom and granddaddy and the family of quails and family protection. Each story has numerous memories from the past and closer to the present. 

The first time the author and his daughter when she was twelve experiences her first hunting and her emotions , fears and triumphs are highlighted. There are numerous memories in each chapter and some focusing on specific people and special hunts. 

The chapter that focuses on the title of the book focuses on a special time with his daughter when she was four and helped him in The Store, learning about nails, hammering and more. But she wanted to walk down Rock Road a special place the author walked down the

memories were precious but his daughter wanted to know what the beautiful smell was. It was the sweet honeysuckle in his mother’s yard and he taught her how to eat it. Exploring different places, helping him with tasks and then more honeysuckle ending in a special dinner at Burger King and the best is ice cream. Then riding and seeing turkeys and a fire but where was it and how did it happen? It was a special time for both father and daughter.  Next chapter is called tying nets filled by taking her place which focuses on a special family time and husband daughter going on a hunt, getting done good shots, a bobcat and father daughter bonding reminding him of days long gone. The final chapter is called Signs.  When will it snow? How did his granddaddy predict the first flakes? His first winter of his BB gun hunting day and how the cedar wax wings mysteriously just appeared. What about the signs that try to subtly try to tantalize with captive secrets? Why do ducks show up at the same time every year? Talking about duck hunting in a beaver slough . The property was owned by a friend and one time customer of the author.  Family times, traditions, bonding with his daughter, sports and the delicious honeysuckle making this book filled with many memories that are special and author Bill Fentress brings back the memories in such a way as if they are happening now.
