Publisher's Summary

Ten-year-old Trudy loves Papa more than anybody else until she hears him slap Zoe, her mother. She is so angry at him she wishes he'd die. When he accidentally sets fire to the family mansion and dies in the fire, she is not prepared for the shock.

William has cautioned Zoe not to pry into his financial arrangements. She wants to know where he keeps his money in case his life should end. How will she survive as a widow? The family has nowhere to call home except a sharecropper's shack.

    I found this book to be a very good read.

    It was a great Christian story. Based on widows life experiences of losing her husband and raising a family.

    Story
    "A Most Enjoyable Listen!"

    Listening to this book made me feel like I was a member of the Cameron family facing the struggles and joys of living in the rural Deep South in the early 1900's.The author paints a vivid picture of life in a time long past. The narrator is perfect for this story. Altogether, a most enjoyable listen!

    Story
    "AMAZING!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Dream Bucket the most enjoyable?

    I loved The Dream Bucket on my kindle. But to hear it narrated in a mellow Kentucky accent brought it to life. The narrator is outstanding. I felt as if I was sitting on the back porch and my grandfather was telling me a story. I've listened to audio books before and at times felt the narrator was cartoonish. Not so in this one.
    Highly recommend. You wont be disappointed.

    Story
    "Gritty family drama"

    I enjoyed the writing style of the author, plainly stated here and slyly painting word pictures there. I think this lady has listened to the hoot owls and bobcats in the woods and may miss them now.

    Story
    "Dream Bucket"

    I liked the narrator, he had a great southern voice. Mr. Lomakayu's voice reminded me of southern men when I was a child growing up in the south. The story had some sad parts so do all good books, that are about history of the south and hard times the people of that era lived and endured. I had a hard time not spending all my free time listening to this book - very entertaining. Really enjoyed the audio version.

    Story
    "The Triumph of Love"
    Any additional comments?

    "The Dream Bucket" is a story of survival and overcoming hardships amidst tragic circumstances. It takes place in days of old, when pioneers worked hard and lived simpler lives close to the land. There were good times and bad. They celebrated the joys in life with laughter, community, and fellowship. Faith and hard work pulled them through the hard times, as did their friends and neighbors. In "The Dream Bucket," we meet Zoe, the main character. Due to a tragic fire, she loses her husband. Faced with widowhood as a single mother, she must find a way to rebuild their lives from scratch. Zoe finds strength that she never knew she had, as well as new love. This is a tale that will remind you that faith and love always triumph, and of the importance of good neighbors and community.
