The Book of Ruth

by Ruth St. John Thomas

Young Ruth St. John didn’t know she was poor.  It was the middle of the depression in rural Illinois, and no one had money.  No indoor plumbing or electricity, heat from coal or wood stoves, these were the norm. 

She was happy in her life.  She was young, pretty, healthy and fit.  She spent her days in the little one room school, walking two miles each way.  The family was always well dressedâ??her mother was the best seamstress in the county.  Her dresses were made from feed and flour sacks on her mother’s treadle Singer sewing machine. 

These stories of life in the rural Midwest during the depression are brought to vivid life in this book of memoirs.   Ms St. John is an accomplished storyteller, and her memories of her early life in Illinois are touching and vibrant.

Look for her other books on Amazon.com. The Rawleigh Man Told Me, The Red Headed Girl, Lucy’s Ghost, and The Book of Ruth.
