Miller is the 13th of 22 children, which puts her in a good position to see the whole picture of this unusual family. She plans to publish her family’s recipe collection, and “The Perfect Courtship,” a collection of some 300 penny postcard love-letters her parents exchanged between 1938 and 1940.
Miller spent her 31-year sales and management career with IBM and with ADP’S Brokerage Group. In retirement, she enjoys quilting, fishing, traveling, and playing tennis. She lives with her husband, Tom, in North Port, FL and welcomes feedback @email@example.com
Descripción del libro
Helen Miller’s memoir, “Farm Life with 21 Siblings” depicts the organized chaos of raising 22 children in a relatively small home. Her parents married young and proceeded to have 22 single birth children between December 16th, 1940 and January 13th, 1966. According to Wikipedia, the Miller family of 22 children holds the record as the largest living single-birth U.S. family from one mother and one father in this century.
Miller describes how the family managed as they grew up on a farm and lived off the land through good years and bad, and focuses on traditional meals depending on what produce was in season. She develops the theme of everyday life in a family where schedules revolved around the rhythm of the Catholic church and school calendar.
It’s a surprisingly up-beat and always fascinating story of a unique Minnesota family’s history.
Público al que se apunta
Anyone who grew up with one sibling and longed for more, parents who are curious about how to maintain discipline with a growing family, budgeters wondering how to afford to feed a big group, those questioning how parents “make do” when money is tight and those who found “19 and Counting” fascinating. Miller’s manuscript reminds one of the book, Little Heathens which is also a memoir featuring a large family, set in Iowa during the Great Depression.
