"With her grandsons in mind, Charlene Pillow Little has recorded her family history, from her 1937 birth in rural Arkansas through her early 70s in northern Alabama. Little’s forthrightness and humor show through her writing as she takes readers along...her book surely will delight her family, though it holds little interest for general readers."

Synopsis

For author Charlene Pillow Little, the mirror on the wall refl ected a sobering message. As the signs of aging were obviously growing at a much higher rate
than her 401(k) she must act quickly, but not for a face lift. It was time for Sarah to set the record straight and go all the way back to the fifties, to the time when she too was wrinkle-free, young and restless. These memoirs are her own unmistakable voice talking about the good, the bad, and the not so pretty of her journey through life.

The Song of Sarah presents a touching personal story from 1937 to 2010, beginning with her birth in the thirties when the family physician arrives an hour late. Her feisty grandmother assumes the role of emergency MD. Growing up petite and scrawny in the fifties—and always on
the lookout for ways to change her name to the one she feels is truly her—she emerges from each hurdle stronger in character, body, and mind. Though her childhood years were lived in an environment considered poverty-stricken, the hardships and circumstances served to define more
clearly and purposefully certain ambitions and values.

Told with candor and humor, her story is more about the human spirit that wills itself, not only to survive, but triumph over the long haul—a spirit that doesn’t accept the notion that life is over after the fiftieth wedding anniversary.
