The P.E.O. Founders' Scrapbook
"I love history, and this is a warm, enthralling book that takes you straight into the heart of what it was like to be a woman at the beginning of the 20th Century. Atkins takes her grandmother's handwritten diaries and transforms them for the reader into a lovely, graceful story taking us through her childhood as a farm girl, through World War I, and the devastating flu epidemic of that era. Compare this to the stories of Katherine Ann Porter, and Atkins does not fail to measure up. I recommend the book to anyone interested in history, in challengers women have faced, or in love."
