Continuing where Seldom Told Tales of Sharon leaves off, Book 2 invites the reader to delve deeper into the interconnected web that links people from various walks of life, generations and geographic locations to the town of Sharon. Once again, Ed Kirby tells the stories of the diverse people of Sharon whose lives still touch us today. “Tales 2” chronicles the lives of three strong women, Emily Winthrop Miles, Maria Bissell Hotchkiss and Lizzie St. John Eckel. The social and structural history of the town’s iconic clock tower, the true-life story of the Colgate Mansion and the history of Catholicism in Sharon are also included in the volume.
