This is a beautiful tale of Miriam Coulter Pence's upbringing, faith in God, and love for family and community. Duncan's book is full of lessons of how Miriam faced deaths in her family, how she devoted her life to helping friends and family, and how she faced her own mortality. She was such a caring person.
I recognized Miriam's traits inherited by my friend and her late mother, Marjorie. When I turned to the photo near the end of the book, I was not surprised to see how much Duncan and her great-grandmother favor each other. No wonder she felt compelled to tell her story.
Duncan has done more than chronicle Miriam's life. Her writing is interesting, heartwarming, sensitive and genuine. Before I was halfway through I had come to care about a woman unrelated to and unknown by me. I realized I did more than pay a compliment to my friend by reading her book. I really enjoyed this story and was left wanting more. It made me want to explore the lives of Hoosier women in my own family.
What a blessing to be able to call such a woman grandmother.
The only improvement would be more dialogue, and less 'telling' about the events. I hope this
author continues to write, I'd love to see what she comes up with next.
