Written in 1965 by Rodello Hunter, "A House of Many Rooms" is a joyous touching memoir of her growning up years at the turn of the century in a small Utah town. There were 13 children growning up in this house, some "owned" and some "borrowed" when nephews, nieces and grandchildren were taken into the brood. The book chronicles the life events, some sad, most humorous, and all treated with affection and understanding- for in such a large family something is happening all the time. The author jumps around from one time period to another. I couldn't quite keep track of the ages of the children or where in the time frame of the family she was discussing. I enjoyed the book, it is cute and intertaining and gives you another perspective of Mormon family life.
