I enjoyed reading Maude's story, and marveled at how she just kept going with so much sadness in her life.

I do not dole out 5 stars very often. This isn't an eloquent literary crafted book but the main characters voice is so interesting i was engaged from beginning to end. The voice you imagine comes from the past before cars, washing machines, electricity, maternity wards, indoor plumbing. When you buried your babies before you and when women didn't have the vote and were basically at the mercy of their husbands. Maude was born in a small rural hamlet of western Tennessee. She was married at 14 and so began her adult life.

It is a non fiction book with some literary license. It was authored by Maude's granddaughter but written in Maude's voice from stories she told her growing up.

It reminded me a lot of Little House on the Prairie but with an adult viewpoint.

This was a very compelling read. The short chapters keep the story moving right along and I found myself drawn into Maude’s family life, her ups and downs and the struggles she experienced. The author is a good storyteller, period. Recommended.
