The individual stories of Hattie's children and 1 grandchild were well written. Mathis has given us a good glimpse into their lives, but I ultimately wanted more. Especially wanted to know more about Ruthie and Ella since we only met them briefly as infants. This book was good, but I think it could have been great with the addition of 50 to 100 more pages. She gave us a sip of really delicious writing but then left me unsatisfied with the lack of details.
