Synopsis: An autobiography that begins with one's birth begins too late, in the middle of the story, sometimes at the end. So begins Mary Lee Settle's memoir. Her story carries within it inherited choices, old habits, old quarrels, old disguises, and the river that formed the Kanawha Valley of West Virginia and the mores of her childhood. She traces effects on her family and herself as ancient as earthquakes, mountain formations, and the crushing of swamp into coal deposits. In doing so, Settle records the expectations, talents, and tragedies of a people and a place that would serve as her deep and abiding subject in The Beulah Quintet.

Review: This lively memoir has an unusual biographical twist--it focuses on an era well before the author Mary Lee Settle was even born. Not content to take the usual journey from childhood to old age, Settle instead focuses on the life and times of her own West Virginian Grandmother Addie. By exploring the roots of her family tree, Settle can give a broader perspective to her own life, her relationship with her mother and Grandmother, and the attitudes which she inherited from them.

Addie gives a fascinating insight into the culture of gentrified white Southerners at the turn of the century, a culture which ousted the young Addie for her scandalous relationship with a man who was far above her in status and class. Through meticulous research of family documents and court papers, Settle has painted a very personal but very telling portrait of a bygone era, and a life lived so long ago.
