Blooming: A Small-Town Girlhood

Blooming: A Small-Town Girlhood by Susan Allen Toth turned out to be a good reading list choice for August.

Ms. Toth writes with fondness about growing up in Ames, Iowa during the 1950's. This is a pleasant memoir dwelling on the positive and good. Nothing salacious, no bitterness, anger, or even remorse is in this. It's a very soothing reminiscence of a time that, by Ms. Toth's account, appears to have been easier and more innocent than the time we now live in.

It's a nice book.
