Inspirational author Ann H. Gabhart chats about the tales that she wove together to create Angel Sister, an RT Top Pick! Learn how this new novel evolved from stories passed down through her family and what special message the author tried to send with her latest work.
People like to talk about the “good old days.” We often say we wish things were like they used to be, but most of us have selective memories when we think about our younger days. And that’s good. It’s a gift to dwell on the positive events of our pasts rather than things that weren’t so happy.
That’s the way it was for my mother. Mom was born in 1920 and remembers well the years of the Great Depression. Her family was poor but never went hungry at a time when many Americans did. My mother’s family avoided that by having a garden, a milk cow, and honeybees. And credit at the neighborhood grocery store. My mom and aunts loved to talk about when they were kids. Most of the time, they would end up laughing about their “good old days.” They felt loved and they were happy.
