From the Publisher:
?What else would you wish for?? Daddy says. ?If you could have anything in the world, what would you wish for?? |I shrug. ?Oh, I don't know. Maybe . . .? |?Maybe what?? |?For us to live better than we do.? |He does not say anything. ||
 

In 1948, award-winning author Ruth White lived in Jewell Valley, a coal camp nestled between the hills of southwestern Virginia, with her mother, still mourning for a baby who died four years earlier; her father, who spent the weekends and most of his pay out drinking; and her three older sisters, Audrey, Yvonne, and Eleanor. Told in Audrey's voice, this is how the author imagines Audrey's experiences during a time of great trauma for the White family - and what happened before they were able to live a better life. |||This snapshot of life in a coal camp, complete with everyday heartaches and joys - as well as stories, songs, and jokes - is Ruth White's most personal work to date.

Praise

"Details of setting and time are pitch perfect; spare, lyrical language combines skillfully with dialect...." 9/1/2008
