She first became pregnant by her step-father, and then by a man who left her when she became pregnant, and then she married and had three sons and a daughter. Those four were the only ones who survived her. The author, Jeanne Shannon, herself grew up in Southwestern Virginia without electricity or telephone, graduated from Radford in 1956, and now lives in New Mexico. This is her 9th book.
