Synopsis: Sarah Richards, the oldest of five children growing up in the early 20th Century rural Midwest, struggles to hold her family together as she and her three siblings attempt to survive illness, abandonment, abuse, negelct, hunger, institutionalization, and loss. In Crackers and Milk, Arlene Nelson retells her mother's amazing story of an unusually tarnished childhood, as her mother told it to her many years ago. Readers of all ages will not be able to put this book down, nor will they ever forget the stength, determination, loyalty and resilience of this extradorinaty girl.
About the Author: Arlene Nelson was born on March 12, 1934 to Edgar and Sally (Sarah Richards) Sanborn. She was the "middle button" of 5 children. She graduated from Kenyon High School, in Kenyon, MN. in 1952 with Highest Honors. She attended Mankato State University classes through Community Education in Owatonna, MN. She married her high school sweetheart, Robert Nelson in the fall of 1952. They have 4 grown children, Pamela, Douglas, Patricia and Paul, 13 grand children, and 3 great-grandsons. They have been married 55 years and are retired. Arlene is an accomplished seamstress as well as a author in her retired life. When she and Bob are not traveling, she loves to square dance and volunteers regularly for her church. This is her first book. She has been told often throughout her life that she is a marvelous story teller but never realized her love for writing until now. After settling down after her book tour, she is considering starting a second book, either about her mother's married life and then, perhaps, her own story. She has only one purpose in mind and that is to record the history of her legacy to be given to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
