Mary Bromfield

  • The Writer I Live With

    As a girl, Mary Appleton Wood spent her winters in New York and her summers at the famous old Appleton Farms in Ipswich, Massachusetts. She married Louis Bromfield in 1921, and shortly after the success of his first novel, The Green Bay Tree, they moved to France, where for fourteen years they had their delightful and much visited home in Senlis. With their three daughters they returned to the United States in the autumn of 1938, and they live today on their fertile and still more visited farm in Ohio, which has been described by Mr. Bromfield in his two books Pleasant Valley and Malabar Farm.
