Nora and Me

by Ron Wood

About the Book

This is the true story of the special friendship between a boy and a woman eighty-four years his senior.

Nora and Me follows the two from the first moment they meet, when a four-year-old Ron spies eighty-eight-year-old Nora smoking cigarettes on her porch in the Santa Barbara sun. Over the next fifteen years, until Nora’s death, their friendship develops and deepens. Through injury and sickness, through the ups and downs of childhood and old age, Ron and Nora learn from one another, take care of one another, and love one another, building a “true friendship” as unique as it is heartwarming.

    This is one of many heartwarming stories from Ron Wood. Hoping there are many more like this to come. Ron explores the depths of friendship and confirms it can happen at any time. Easy to read, concise with vivid imagery! Well done Ron!

    Endearing story of a relationship between a young boy and an elderly woman that warms your heart. I could not put the book down and will read it again! Hope it becomes a movie.

    I read, and then again Nora and Me. A sweet child's relationship with an elderly woman is tenderly revealed though anecdotes during a sweeter, quieter time in Southern California. I believe I will read again.

    Touching Story

    Very heart warming story. So Sad that there is so much bullying of both the young and old. It makes you realize how life can be so hard. Just take a moment and see the good in someone. I enjoyed reading the friendship of a little boy that grew year by year.
