As the youngest girl in a family of ten, Shirley Hale Whitlow presents this collection of twenty-five short stories for all ages. The stories take place in the rural area of Ferrum, Virginia, which is in the southern part of the state. It tells about her childhood memories growing up in the mid-fifties. These inspiring stories include visiting grandparents, conversations around the dinner table, spending Christmas in the mountains, attending public schools, learning life's lessons (including how to drive), and plenty of other surprising twists and turns. What is the one thing that people want most? To be remembered and missed when they are gone. With this book, hopefully, there will be a remembrance revival. It would be great if everyone that reads this book jotted down their childhood memories and passed them along to others. Just imagine the emotions of a person that has lost their only child, a family member, brother, sister, or dear friend, and several years later, they read a book and see their loved one's name in print—knowing that someone else has been thinking of them and has written their memories down for others to share? What a glorious feeling that would be. Go do it. Start a movement.
