I read some concerning reviews so I’ll be reading this myself before I decide if it stays.

Example:
A story from a bygone era...

Fair warning upfront: this book was written about a time that was not politically correct whatsoever. There are parts with bullies at school, fist fights, children getting spanked / whacked by teachers and parents, and an episode of anti-Semitism.

The semi-autobiographical nature of the book (with the author coming from and writing about a Shaker upbringing) also made it more interesting.… (mer)
