Publisher's Summary

Every life has crises. What we do with those becomes our legacy.

Weaving a rich tale of faith and family, the Grandma, Mom, and Me saga begins with Louise, a story of unbearable loss, unconditional love, and immeasurable endurance.

Louise Rafferty is born to a sharecropper in Southern Illinois. She is barely a year old when her mother dies of a terminal illness and her childhood innocence is stolen overnight. Her father remarries and moves the family to a farm in Northeast Arkansas, but along the way, her stepmother meets an unfortunate end, leaving Louise and her sister to care for the family.

Less than a decade after her mother’s death, Louise finds herself thrust into the role of cook and housekeeper and grows up wondering if her life will ever be more than domestic hardship.

Life begins anew when she marries Dutch. After having seven children together and building a mildly successful farm, Louise finally believes she has found true happiness. Until tragedy strikes once more.

Will she be able to keep the farm? How will she make ends meet for herself and her children?

From the beginning, you'll get caught up in it

I really enjoyed the audible. I listened to "Louise" each day while I am on the stationary bike. I would sometimes bike longer so I could hear the next chapter. Faye Bryant is not only an amazing writer, she's a great narrator. I highly recommend this book even if it's not your typical preferred genre. From the beginning, you will get caught up in it. Thanks for sharing this with me, Faye. I can't wait for the next one. ~ Beth Huneycutt
