Inside the cover describes this book as Laura Ingalls Wilder for adults. I liked reading it, written in first person, it's a novel based on the real life of Jeannette Walls' grandmother, Lily Casey Smith.

The jacket photograph is by Dorothea Lange, Farm Security Administration/Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division. I had hoped it was Rosemary, Helen and Buster but not.

I think now I want to re-read The Glass Castle. Library day for me, Happy Saturday everyone, the sun is shining in Michigan.

I'm adding this to my stack! Right now I'm reading Firefly Lane. I don't think I'll finish it though. It's really bothering me, so I can't recommend it at all!! The Shack, and then The Help. So glad you posted about this!
Have a great day!
