Jep's Place: Hope, Faith and Other Disasters by Joseph A. Parzych

First sentence:

"There were 13 kids in our combined family--15, counting two of my father's sons by his first wife."


"Jep’s Place: Hope, Faith and Other Disasters is the entertaining story of a boy growing up during the Great Depression in a family of 13 children of Polish immigrants in a small farmhouse at the end of a dirt road" -- from BN.com

My thoughts:

I liked this memoir of growing up on a struggling farm during the Depression. Parzych describes the highs and lows well and I liked learning what happened to him and the family.
