A Gift of Love by Sue Lovett Ray

This was a very enjoyable book to read. It was written very simply but from the heart. I felt like the author was my grandmother, sitting down for a visit and her sharing personal stories about her life.
Some stories made me laugh, and some made me want to cry. I have read many books about the great depression. This one gave me an inside look of not only the hardships family face but a glimpse of the struggles of a widow with a large family.
In spite of all the difficulties they faced, the book is written on a positive note. Not only the mother but the children also showed great courage, strength and determination in the face of seemingly impossible situations.
I was so impressed with the love and selflessness of each member of her family. It is easy to see how strong character was a byproduct of those times. This would be an excellent book for children to read. Not only to show them how blessed they are, but also to see you don’t’ have to have everything you want to be happy.
I received this book free from the Hannibal Books. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255
