There is a book I have always remembered from childhood. Except I could not remember the name. I could tell you about the plot and that the characters in the book picked things off the land to survive and hid the death of their father.
Can you name that book?
Last week I googled the premise and it was no mystery that Google knew all. Where the Lilies Bloom by Bill and Vera Cleaver.
In one of those impulse buys I picked up the book. I nearly got through the book already and will probably finish it off tonight. (It is meant for Jr High school level is my guess)
It is interesting re-reading it. I can’t tell you when I read it as a kid. At home or for school? I couldn’t have told you the name of the characters before but it is so familiar. I keep having these “oh yea” moments as I get through it.
It makes me wonder why it left such an impression on me. Probably the survival mode that the kids had to be in.
What book do you remember from childhood?
