A Barefoot Life
A Barefoot Life is a memoir which speaks to us about how the author celebrates living by recognizing that we are all exposed to the good times and the bad times. When her parents are told to institutionalize their baby daughter, do they take the easy road or the challenging road? When homicides claim three young family members in one single day, what coping skills kick in? When a fifteen-year–old daughter becomes pregnant, sneaks away to marry and quits school, can words make a difference? In her own starkly honest words we learn how the author, her biological family, and her fifty-year marriage have survived and thrived. She recognizes that we are living in the good old days of tomorrow. She cooked on a wood stove, heated irons over an open fire on wash day, and cleaned coal oil lamp chimneys on Saturdays. The movie (not movies) was a dime.A little Kentucky river town helped raise her until she started a new life with a boy across the river. The travel logs included in this book take the readers through the United States and Canada. The logs present a humorous, sometimes insightful picture of married life, and they share her love for our God and our Land.
