When I saw the book for the first time, I was surprised at the size of it. I don't recall ever reading a 450 page book. To my surprise, I was sucked right into the story from the beginning. I found it difficult to stop reading. Instead of watching TV in the evenings, I kept reading the book.

I've read this book twice now! The author paints a wonderful picture of what life must have been like nearly 100 years ago in the American Mid West. Based on true events, it's a great read that left me feeling hopeful and happy.

Written by the brother-in-law of a friend, mostly true story of his and her husband's grandmother.
She led an interesting life; the story is well told, but a bit verbose at times. It is worth reading! An Amazon published book, so not edited by a True editor. Our book club will enjoy the discussion of this book!
