    [synopsis] => This compelling autobiography is a delightful and humorous read. It shows how faith, love and parental nurturing helped a skinny, very ordinary little girl through early obstacles, and led her to an extraordinarily satisfying life. Born during the Great Depression, she was raised in poverty, though she never recognized it as such. She faced death twice by age eight, but never feared she would die. When she was nine, she was uprooted from the only home she had ever known but was able to adapt to the new circumstances. She treated life as an adventure with her name written all over it. 

The author's ability to cope and her positive attitude were inherited from her parents and forebears. Her grandparents immigrated to America to find the "Promised Land," but instead the land they found was hard and dry, and the work to make it arable was even harder. The author also added her grandmother-in-law's story, which was carefully handwritten in a journal beginning in 1875. Their experiences after coming as pioneers to the west coast were astonishing. 

But this book mainly chronicles the author's childhood, how she met the man of her dreams, losing him for a time, but passionately coming together again. This began a lifetime of living, loving, and laughing, on their way to becoming nonagenarians. Now all of her lofty childhood dreams have been fulfilled and she is ready to share her wonderful life with other readers.
