About the Book

Book: Adventures in Poverty

Author: Nancy Bolton

Genre: Memoir

Release Date: July 30, 2019

Faced with eviction, living on union strike pay, our time for making a decision was running out. Where could we go to live with our five small sons? We had few options. The scariest possibility was also the one that fit best with our tiny income. But could we really make such a difficult move? To transport our family, and our mobile home onto a five-acre parcel of rural, undeveloped land? No electricity, no running water, with winter fast approaching. It sounded a little crazy…….

My Review

I really loved this book. Being a true story makes it even better. I loved how they lived on very little. It was many years ago when they lived this life but I am sure they learned lot from it. Loved how the kids has a lot of reading time and lot of family activities. So much different from today. She was such a hard worker. She was so thrilled when they got well water. You learn to appreciate the little things. 

I received a complimentary copy of the book from Celebrate Lit. This book review is my own opinion.

More from Nancy

Sometimes life hands out an unexpected challenge, and the direction you mapped out for your family comes up against a big roadblock. And there you are, trying to navigate back to a path that makes sense. One that would be as close to the previous path as you can get. But our only options led us in directions far away from what we were used to.

  1. This is getting more and more common in our world and it is sad. I love true stories so I will have to look at this one! As always thank you for this wonderful review!

  2. This sounds like a fantastic read and I love that it’s a true story. I truly believe that we all have way more than we need and what we truly need is to be closer to our families…it sounds like this family had it tough but I’m sure there were many gifts and blessings that came from the experience! I must read this!

  3. Yikes! My heart goes out to that fictional family! I tend to cry when I read books like these. It could be a stark reality for some, though. With the massive floods as a result of the rains here in India, so many families have lost their homes and belongings… and it’s scary!
