Loved this book. My grandmother would talk about the great depression when I was a child, and while she did not experience the Dust Bowl, she did talk about how relatives from town would visit her family farm and how they were all "so hungry" and suffered from the great depression, so reading about the struggles and the details of the characters made me feel as if I could finally identify with some of the struggles my grandmother experienced as a girl growing up in the depression. The story was a quick read for me, I finished it in two days, could not put it down. Loved the struggle for the American Dream and trying to overcome obstacles and hardships while keeping your family together.
