The story of Mae Lee, a Southern woman trying to make it on her own during World War II. This is the story of her life and the struggle of trying to keep her farm going. It's an enjoyable story. I found that it loses it's focus a bit in the middle, but it's well worth finishing.

I loved this story of a woman taking care of her family and her land and making a good life for herself and her family. There is a lot of love in this story and a lot of history.

A sweet book about a black woman in the south who has to raise a large family on her own and her ingenuity and wisdom. Not long enough to explore the characters as much as I would have wished for.

A delight in the comedy and keen pathos of everyday life as it is lived by everyday people - black and white.
