A good read for young and old alike. Older folks may recall memories of their own, either ones lived or ones retold by relatives. Younger readers will have the opportunity to step back into time during an important part of American (and world) history.

You will be able to truly experience what it was like to grow up in the Midwest during the Great Depression while also sharing the lives of the Porter family - a family who was cared for by their mother - a remarkable woman who never gave up and guided them through it all with her determination, perseverance, and most of all, love. The author tells the story in a colorful way that allows you to feel like you are part of the family. In fact, you will almost be able to smell the "bread on the table."

On a recent trip to Iowa, I was given this book to get to know the history and understand the lives of a family who exemplifies my idea of hard working and down to earth farmers from our nation's heartland. I loved reading a story about real people and the joys and challenges of making a living by working the land. To know that this family survived and is still thriving in the area with many still working in farming is fabulous! Thank you Renetta for sharing your family and your story with us!
