Linda Schilling Mitchell
From the description:

"...takes you on a journey using a variety of notes written during the great depression years of 1937-1940 as stepping stones.

It was during those years in Newport, Kentucky, that third grade teacher Miss Schneider began collecting the written excuses the mothers of her students sent in as to why their children were absent from school. These humble, heartfelt and sometimes humorous notes have been cloistered in a scrapbook for more than seventy years."

To hungry aliens, an frontier planet with no military presence looks like an invitation to lunch.

In a desperate bid to save the planet, Boone reluctantly enlists the aid of an old enemy banished for his part in a bloody stellar conflict. 

Complicated by the aliens' strange allies and an even stranger artifact, and with battles raging in space and on the planet, the action rushes to a furious climax.
