New Book is out

This is to announce the release of a new book written by my step mom Lula White Poor. This has been a long time in the making, as a matter of a fact all her life.. She shares her families good times and bad times, the fun of growing up as Lula White and what life was like in general as a Sharecroppers Daughter.. Here is a little paragraph to give you and example.
Sharecropper's Daughterby Lula White Poor
"Did you ever ride a pig…drink milk straight from a cow…tear the seat out of your pants while sliding down the barn roof? No? Meet someone who did. In Sharecropper’s Daughter, Lula White Poor gives readers a candid look at growing up the daughter of a sharecropper in eastern Arkansas. Lula and her brothers lived in shacks provided by the landowners their daddy worked for each year. In the early 1930s and ’40s, the school calendar for Lula and her brothers revolved around the harvest, and kids were trusted with responsibility and freedom at a young age. This meant a lot of hard work and growing up fast, but it also meant a whole lot of fun. Lula and her family didn’t have material wealth, but they were wealthy in love. They knew to make the most of what they had, and with it had a ball. Today’s world is a different place, but in Sharecropper’s Daughter, you can sit back and reminisce of simpler times. "This book will be out at soon and you can get your copy now from
Lula has a great way of pulling you right into words on the page. You will be captivated by the stories she tells and unable to plan your day's until you finish reading this book. Thanks everyone for stopping in to my blog.. Sheila
