22gigantes.com - Author Rachel G. Carrington lays no claim to lofty jobs, higher education, nor grand accomplishments except for a love-filled, multifaceted, family-oriented, poverty-to-plenty life. In The Early Years, the first in a series, she shares her story. As a young teenager, just entering high school in the small town of Denton, Kentucky, Carrington planned to attend college and become a teacher. With coursework geared toward college attendance, she was offered a lucrative scholarship that would help her to attain her goal. However, it took only a single event to send her down a different path. She met a returned World War II veteran who was attempting to pick up the pieces after finding his marriage in irreparable shambles and his children gone. As he struggled, Carrington was there, and they pulled together to clear the many hurdles before them.In this memoir, she tells the story of their journey and how their love and dedication for each other kept moving them forward. Filled with the joys, disappointments, and struggles of a couple, The Early Years narrates how the love of the heavenly Father was the continuous thread that bound Carrington’s life together.

By kacee24 I have to first say that I am somewhat biased in writing this review since I am a daughter of the author. I started reading this book and before I finished the first chapter I have tears running down my cheeks. I am sure that many of you can relate to the stories this author tells since you or your parents have some of these experiences in your past or you have heard of them from your parents‘early years. Mom lived in a small Kentucky town where the major employers are a railroad company and coal mining companies. Life is not easy. I have been privileged to be the daughter who was the driver for many years to what we termed the “Sister Sessions” held by this family over the years and at one such session, Mom started telling her younger sisters, how is was back in the day. Since there is such an age difference in the sisters and Mom’s younger sisters hadn’t heard her story, this story was told year after year but it was a never ending story and therefore continued yearly until the end of those sessions. They ended too soon because of some health problems and the deaths of two of the younger sisters. At a recent reunion with the youngest sister, a brother and nieces, Mom was asked to tell her story again because her brother hadn’t heard it. Mom started her story but as usual it got late (early morning actually) and the story was suspended until the next day. The next morning, other topics came up so the brother never heard any more of the story. Neither had the brother-in-law, who was quietly listening to her story that previous night and as we were heading to the car for our drive back to Ohio the next morning, that brother-in-law whispered into Mom’s ear that she needed to write a book. That whisper got Mom started writing her books and this is the first one. She hopes to finish the other two books soon. It is her story, but it is so very interesting and I am so thankful that she listened to her brother-in-law and has made it into a book. It means a lot to the family but I believe it will also be interesting to your readers as well. 4 of 4 people found the following review helpful. Not just any love story. This is a story where you want to hear more! By Melisa I found this book extremely difficult to put down! I wanted to hear more about her parents, her family and more about Brad, the love of her life. Rachel has such a way of making you feel like you were right there with her, seeing, hearing, smelling and feeling the things she went through. Oh, and some of the characters she wrote about... Brad, his son Bradley Jr. and the mean old Landlady in Cincinnati. I want to hear more and cannot wait for Rachel's next segment, "Dreams Born; Dreams Fulfilled!" 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful.
