Overview

THAT'S LIFE is no run-of-the-mill memoir. Nor is the woman whose life it chronicles typical or "garden variety". THAT'S LIFE is told in dozens of engaging short stories.
With skill, candor and optimism, Carol Petersen Purroy weaves a vibrant tapestry, the patterns, hues and textures of which are made up of these true stories. It highlights the experiences and adventures that have shaped the woman she has become.
Her journey takes us from the Great Depression to the present, the most exciting and amazing period in history. Her personal saga is equally captivating. History comes to life as she reacts to local and world events and cultural changes.
The stories in this book were written over 20 years while she taught classes on memoir writing. She did the assignments along with her students. She published her memoirs not because she's so special, but precisely because she's not. She's not a celebrity so why would she write and publish her life stories? To demonstrate that everybody's got a story, and if only for your family and community, it needs to be told. She is making her memoirs available to inspire others to write their own stories, to give them ideas for their own stories. As you read her stories, you'll be reminded of people, places, events and adventures in your own life, and she hopes you'll start writing your stories.
Some of her stories are amazing, but so are yours.
Her stories include attacks by animals and witches; miracles and guardian angels; overcoming obstacles; failures and successes; marriages and relationships; lessons learned; her values and beliefs, and much much more. Her writing is professional and engaging -- THAT'S LIFE is full of GOOD stories you'll enjoy reading.
