The time is the late 1930s and early 1940s in the Appalachian mountains of southern West Virginia. A little girl was growing up pretty much unnoticed by those in her close-knit community, but this particular little girl was watching, listening, and remembering.
The tears, laughter, hard work and daily lives of those she loved made a lasting imprint on her life.
This is the story of her secret dreams, silent thoughts and special hopes that someday she would have a bigger, more exciting world to live in. I was that little girl.
