This is the first book in the chronological order of the life of the author. Experience with her the family mysteries and turmoil. Be transported in time as Leite reveals what life was like growing up in rural America, caught between the “haves and the have nots” during the 1940s. Feel with her what daily life was then, the hardships to the simplicity, and contrast it to life today. Most readers will envision someone they know in her captivating story.
