About Edith J Thomas

I am a wife, mother, grandmother and an older sister to twelve siblings: 6 brothers and 6 sisters. I have a husband of 47 years, three children and four grandchildren. I currently live in a small "one horse" town with one stop light, one bank, and one grocery store. I've lived in mid-size cities and prefer the slow, country style life we currently lead. Where else can you experience a traffic jam of 3 pickups, a tractor and a lawn mower? Heaven! My siblings would probably agree I was born to be the older sister: bossy, nosy, and just slightly dysfunctional. Yeah, I fit in well with them.

Review by: Karen Magnus on Sep. 26, 2012 :
This book is a wonderful compilation of the stories of siblings reunited (with some united for the 1st time). Edith, the big sister of the group, put this together from her siblings memories. It is poignant, heartwarming, sad and full of love for one another, leaving the reader wanting to know more, more and more. God has His fingerprints all over these people and their coming together and coming to terms with each other and their pasts is both chilling and marvelous. A great read for anyone who is thinking about finding their birth families.
