Format: Paperback
Can't rate it high enough!! 5 stars is way to low! A memoir desguised as a novel. It's not until you're well into this Classic that you realize he's telling the story about how his parents met and fell in love. You think you've had it rough, read this one! First read it 15-20 years ago and lost track of my copy. Been looking for it. Ordering a new one right now! Timeless classic of two people head-over-heels in love surviving through the depression. This one'll get ya right where ya live!! If you see it in a used book store(it's out of print) pick it up, run to the check-out, race home and cancel your plans for the rest of the day! Thank God for Amazon.com that I've found it again. If I could find a woman like Orlean, I'd marry her in a minute. Why Clair Huffaker isn't a more well known author, I have no idea. He is a natural. I'd like to meet him.

Format: Paperback
This book is a perfect story. It is a romance, but a true biographical one that avoids the pitfalls of less realistic romances, and sticks to the heart of love--enduring one horrible thing after another (depression, health issues, death, war), and always relying on each other to muddle through. The characters are warm, strong, and very human. The respect with which the couple treats each other is an inspiration and gentle lesson to each of us. Since this book is hard to find I found two copies . . . so I would be willing to lend one.

Format: Paperback
This is the most moving, wet-eyed, sweet, classic romance in the world! It is a story of courage and love and hard work all put together. Clair is such a dedicated, loving, determined, awesome, sweet guy. And Orlean is perfect for him. She's sweet, soft, gentle, loyal, and loving girl. They are the most perfect couple, that stick together through everything. Clair is my idea of a perfect guy. He works so hard for her, during the Great Depression. He would do anything for her. You absolutely have to read this book!!!

I read this book over 20 years ago and I plan on getting it again. This was just one of those books when you read it, you don't want to forget who wrote it or the name. I think this is probably Clair Huffaker's best book.
