Burton waving from her porch in Folly Cove

The world that Virginia Lee Burton created in her books was taken directly from her life. She acted as narrator for Life Story and then stepped into the scene to wave goodbye to the reader from her porch.

The epilogue is a ribbon of time, winding its way to the present. The book has spanned eons and now the time remaining to tell the story has dwindled down to seconds. Burton addresses readers directly: “Now it is your Life Story and it is you who plays the leading role.”
