About The Book
What was it like during the Depression? What was it like during World War II? How did women cope? What made families so special in the 40s and 50s? Were there women ahead of their time? How did a divorced young mother cope in the early years, when this was not “common”? Etta Wilson Lawrence’s book answers these questions and more.
She shares eighty-two years of living history with her readers. She has worked in a wide range of jobs. Quite frankly, there is little she has not done and not seen. And there are those fond and funny moments when she would visit the farm and enjoy the butterflies or the family pig. Then, she shares her experiences as she traveled in the US and in the Caribbean. And what about that bull and outhouse?
It took me three years to put together my first book, Scraps of Family History, which was never published. We had seventy-five copies printed and gave seventy-two of them to family and friends who thought that some of the “stories” from that book might be interesting to someone other than family. I hope that my readers will enjoy it and attempt to write some of their own “Family Stories.”
This work shares the poignant moments of experiencing the love of children, the loss of a child, the love of more than one husband, the loss of more than one, the joy of becoming a grandmother, and the joy of being a writer. Any reader who is ready to curl up and listen to the real life story of a dynamic and avant garde lady who has met every challenge with zest and fortitude, then, this is the book to read!
