What a delight it was to be reminded of everyday life in the 50’s and 60’s in a farming community. Maybe it DOESN’T require a “village” to raise a child…a township seems to have done the job just fine in the case of the Porter children. The contributions of extended family, neighbors, churches, teachers, doctors and friends were shown to be the treasures that they truly are in this down-to-earth memoir. I wish the children of today could experience the life of hard work, self-esteem, generosity, faith, respect and love that I read on these pages.
