I have always loved to read. So years ago I found myself in a bookstore, browsing through the "local" writings & came upon a book that I thought looked interesting, "A Girl of the Limberlost" by Gene Stratton Porter, a Hoosier author. And after just a few pages, I fell in love with her writings.
Years later my Mom filled out a memory book for me. One of the questions asked was "do you remember a favorite book from your childhood or youth". Mom's answer was "A Girl of the Limberlost" which she had read when she was in 7th grade. She didn't even remember who the author was & was surprised to learn that the book was written about my adopted home state of Indiana!
So began my small collection of Gene Stratton Porter books.
