After her father loses the use of a hand, Elizabeth and her five brothers must adapt to a new less kind world. It is 1939 and the Depression has placed them, along with many more people, in a world where the next meal is not often guaranteed. Planning for the upcoming holidays takes a back seat to daily survival. But when times seemed the darkest, friends and family helped them out even when one family member became the villain in the story. The details of a child’s life before the age of TV and smartphones is a lively one for these six children. The unusual joys they shared like a pet lamb that liked to jump rope and playing in a barn full of hay on a rainy day give a modern child a glimpse of what fun a farm life could bring. Elizabeth longs for a pair of shoes that fit and her brothers wish for a bicycle. They realize the financial conditions of the family cannot provide these dreams and the surprise is just how wrong they were about the kind of Christmas this one would be.
