Lizzie's Blue Ridge Memories by Liesa Swejkoski
When Lizzie’s father finds himself out of work during the General Motors strike in 1970, he packs up his family and takes them from Detroit to his mother’s farm in Virginia. Lizzie and her sisters are in for an adventure they could never have dreamed of! The ‘city girls’ not only learn to milk cows, fish with cane poles, and feed chickens, they also learn about life and death…in the most natural of settings. Along the way, Lizzie encounters many joyful experiences, discovering the real meaning of life among family and rural lifestyles.
