Adventures in Poverty Celebrate Lit Book Tour and Giveaway

Welcome to my stop of Celebrate Lit’s Book Tour for Adventures in Poverty.  I hope you enjoy learning about this book  and author.  At the end is a giveaway for you to enter.  The author will choose someone to win a copy of her book plus a $50 Amazon gift card.  Be sure to enter.

My Thoughts:

Author Nancy Bolton has written a poignant memoir in her book “Adventures in Poverty.”  She is frank and totally transparent about her life after her husband lost his job causing the family to move their trailer to an undeveloped piece of land.  Her book is written like a diary or conversation with the reader.

The cover drew me to the book.  It is whimsical and looked serene.  The stories inside the covers were not.  There are stories about animals, neighbors, family issues, money or lack of it problems, gardening, struggles, and more.  I was disappointed in the light mention of God and faith.

It took me a bit to get invested in the story and even then my attention wandered.  The book was a daily “what we did” and became mundane.  I lost interest and actually skimmed over some of it.  There are flashback from their life before.

The author lived an impressive life.  I could not have managed it.  She was the anchor for her family that lived with no electricity or running water.  Nancy was a genius is stretching her groceries and meal planning.

I would recommend this for people that enjoy memoirs about living off of the grid.  This book is not a page turner but has some nice stories.  It shows how a family must work together peacefully.  Celebrate Lit provided a copy but this is my honest opinion.

Adventures-in-Poverty-hi-resFaced with eviction, living on union strike pay, our time for making a decision was running out. Where could we go to live with our five small sons? We had few options. The scariest possibility was also the one that fit best with our tiny income. But could we really make such a difficult move? To transport our family, and our mobile home onto a five-acre parcel of rural, undeveloped land? No electricity, no running water, with winter fast approaching. It sounded a little crazy…….

More from Nancy:

Sometimes life hands out an unexpected challenge, and the direction you mapped out for your family comes up against a big roadblock. And there you are, trying to navigate back to a path that makes sense. One that would be as close to the previous path as you can get. But our only options led us in directions far away from what we were used to.
