I have this deep love for learning about people of the past. It fascinates me to read stories set in the early 1900s, which is probably why I have fallen in love with Betty Smith as an author. Yesterday, Jordan and I went with his mother to visit an elderly woman. She told us that her own mother had passed away giving birth to her eleventh child. This woman was the fourth child in her family and only 9 years old when her mother passed away. I wanted so badly to have her tell us stories about her life and what is was like growing up in those circumstances.
I have always felt my fashion sense has been pulled from that era, but lately I am drawn by the life that existed then. Does anyone have any suggestions of books set in this time? I have read quite a few already, but I am hoping to soak up more of them. Does anyone else love this time as much as me?
