I have had this book on my shelf for a long time and finally finished the book. Don’t let the title, Bug Swamps Gold, fool you, this is a wonderful book retelling the story of a young girl growing up during the depression years in the 1930s and 1940s. The story takes place in South Carolina and contains so many stories, funny, tragic and everything inbetween in the life of Billie Wilson.
She writes about her time in Bug Swamps. It was a difficult time which was made bearable by a family which was based on love. If you enjoy reading about the depression era through the eyes of a young girl as she is growing up, surrounded by extreme conditions in life, yet, comes out the victor . . . all because of a family’s love, then this is a great book to read.
I received this book from booklookbloggers.com in exchange for this review.
