LOCAL PEOPLE: KEEPSAKES FOR THE HEART--HARDBACK
Sarah Bishop Hart, a small, gentle woman from the hills of Southwest Virginia, was born into a world without hope. When she was five years old, her father hired her out to a family she had never met. From that day, Sarah never knew a real home or what it was like to have a true family. Keepsakes for the Heart sets the life of Sarah Bishop Hart against the mountains and the coal mines, The Great Depression and two World Wars, the women’s movement, and other upheavals of the 20th century. Sarah’s simple mountain philosophy offers a lesson to anyone who has ever thought about giving up.
