it was amazing
Read in January, 2009

Historical fiction based closely on White's own childhood, told from the perspective of her older sister, Audrey. The family lived in a coal mining camp with an alcoholic father who spent the hard-earned scrips on drinking and gambling, leaving the mother to creatively provide food and supplies for the four girls (a 5th younger sister died earlier). Despite the hardships, their is humor and hope. A family photo of the five girls and mother is a welcome addition.
