Synopsis: Didnt Know We Were Poor begins in 1922. Maywood Callis yearned to date the attractive Grace Richardson. Courtship led to marriage and afterward the couple purchased a nineteenth century homestead, where I was born. Then, the stock market crashed after my sisters birth. Daddy made his livelihood on the Bay and by 1932, seafood industries werent. We never hungered but house payments lagged. Would we lose our home? Mamma prayed and acted on impulse to save her family from failure. We children never knew the true circumstances; however, I wondered why. Stories from many states add spice to the tales.
About the Author: The authors life has been continually influenced by conditions of the 1920s and 1930s. Thus, Brooks felt it the proper place to begin a series of books. She has lived a lifetime in Mathews County, Virginia. A widow since 1973, when her husband had a fatal accident, she continued to operate The Craftsman Shop, a fabric and window treatments/furniture cover business, for 25 years. Since retiring, Brooks has been active in her church and devoted much of her time to writing. She has been published since 2001, and her first book, Walk With Me, is still selling.
