Waiting for minimum critic reviews


The idea for writing this book came from my personal experiences as a child growing up in Lake Charles, Louisiana during the Great Depression of the 1930s and 1940s and my teenage and adult experiences. I witnessed firsthand the joys, humiliations, hardships and struggles that women had to endure for their families. I wanted to recount what I experienced during this time period. It has given me a feeling of joy and achievement to put my experiences over the years into writing I hope the younger generations will gain knowledge of our past and take note of our experiences for their future.
