Overview

Born on a small country farm in Croaker, Virginia in 1937, the eldest of five children, Phyllis Garrett did what girls at the time were expected to do; she married young, she started a family, and she stood by her husband in good times and bad. But their “perfect small-town family” held painful secrets, ones that not even Ms. Garrett’s closest friends knew about; secrets she could not even admit to herself until they were simply too much to bear. A Country Girl From Croaker is the amazing story of a small-town girl who finally found the courage to speak out against decades of buried wrongs, aided by her faith in God and the support of family and community. A touching memoir set against the culture and history-rich background of Williamsburg, Virginia, A Country Girl From Croaker is a story of strength and courage that will renew your faith in the human spirit.

"A Remarkable Family Treasure."

I found it refreshing that Phyllis came into her own happiness without that happiness being linked to any man. She has truly broken the mold of the "Cinderella Syndrome."
