Several family members served in the military during World War II. Others were employed by Tennessee Eastman, Holston Ordinance Works, or American Bemberg.
Follow the trials and tribulations of a large family at the beginning of the 19th century. Hear about their pain and desperation during the darkest years of the Great Depression and how they banded together to pull through. Find out what it was like to be a kid during these difficult times.

Dislike this book. Thought it would be in story form. It was not. It was just history of her family read off. Genealogy stuff. I really thought it would be stories thought the generations.
They were all important.
Very well narrated .I enjoyed the facts and hearing of all the characters and their travels.
It makes me happy to wake up everyday and look forward to listening. Many times I listen while doing artwork. I find it very relaxing.
How can you not love these tales. I really enjoyed the stories from three generations of the DeFreece family. This was a neat idea the author Becky Corwin-Adams had. It made me think this would be a terrific way to preserve one's ancestry.
Listening to these tales stirred memories about the stories my elders told me when I was younger. Many along the same lines. Hard-working humble families who were trying to make a living. I liked the part where she talked about what they ate during the week then having a big Sunday dinner.
At the end of the book there are several country recipes from the old days that I'd try but a few I've had before.
Olivia Searfoss did a great job narrating. She has a nice voice and kept an even pace throughout the story. She made this an easy to listen to book. Very enjoyable.
