Born as a surprise gift to her grandparents, Helen Marie Cole Littleton began her life in 1914, with her mother and grandparents on a farm in Boone County near Valley Springs in northern Arkansas. It was a life full of surprises, twists and turns, and lessons galore as Helen experienced a country going through its own share of adversities.
Written to express rather than impress, Bumpings and Blessings presents Helen's candid, charming depiction of places, events, and people she encountered in her eighty years. From surviving the Great Depression and enduring the tragic loss of her husband during World War II to being a single mother with five children and finding love again in her later years, Helen shows how she never allowed the roller coaster of life to bring her down.
Her story is one of faith, love, and perseverance, traits that guided Helen Marie and her family through trials and hardships. Indeed, Helen Marie's story is indicative of why her generation is now known as the Greatest Generation, demonstrating why it is crucial that we remember their sacrifices and tremendous challenges.
Infused with a quaint, old-fashioned flavor, Bumpings and Blessings shares the vivid sights and sounds of an American era that has passed into history, but is certainly not forgotten.
