Publisher's Summary

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a military wife? Did you know that young military families often struggle to survive on military pay? Listen to this book to learn more about the adventures and struggles of an 18-year-old Air Force wife. If being a young military wife wasn't difficult enough, add a baby to the family.

The adventures begin at Chanute Air Force Base in Rantoul, Illinois where the family of three lived in their first apartment. An overflowing bathtub, a missing hamster, and some too close neighbors added to the mayhem. To make life even more exciting, the young family was forced to leave their "comfort zone" in the midwest and relocate to cold, snowy Minot, North Dakota. Can you imagine moving 1,400 miles from home in the middle of winter at tender age of 18? Arriving in a far off northern tier state with no home, no furniture, and not much money presented many unique challenges.

Share the adventures as a young mother daydreams about the rich people who shopped at the former fur store she lived above. Did she find any forgotten fur coats in the vault at Van de Streek Furs?

This audiobook details a young family's struggle to survive the brutal North Dakota winters, and creatively live on an airman's pay.

    "What a legacy!"

    I always have a problem rating a true story i mean, how can you not like a true story? Even if it is a sad or brutal one?
    I have no such problems with this authors books. She writes in an every day conversational style with no thrills or fuss, no big drama it always covers the events she herself lived through. In this case it is herlife as an air force wife in the 70's.

    Starting a family, starting a life together with a new job. Living a life. Now for me the most amazing thing about this authors books is what a legacy she is leaving for generations following her. Her children and grand children must be so impressed with having these books as a reference to what life is like for their parents.

    The narrator, also an old favourite adds to the authenticity of the story as she relays the story as it is written, with little fuss and even less drama. Stunning.
