Life is not easy in the early years – from marriage to child-rearing – something crystal clear in renowned author Rachel G. Carrington’s inspiring book, “The Early Years: A Memoir,” now available in leading digital bookstores globally.
The memoir is set in the 1930s to the 1950s, when a young woman falls in love and eventually forms a family. The memoir serves as a time machine of sorts, and the memories of events and emotions are well-crafted, akin to a piece torn from a journal.
As her memoir opens, Carrington shares, “Throughout my growing-up years, we had strict rules to follow. We were a large family, becoming larger with each year, it seemed. Actually, my siblings – ten of them – and I, in most cases, were eighteen months apart in age. When school was in summer break, we were all required to do our part in the day-to-day chores assigned to us.” In this easy read, Carrington talks about the changes that molded her life and how she copes with them, describing them as a “treasurable” reflection.
Given that Florida author Rachel Carrington was born in 1930 in Kentucky and lived in Ohio and Hawaii, Grady Harp, in his review, said the author was able to reap the benefits of each locale to her repertoire of life experiences.
“Beautifully rendered and compassionate, this is a ‘memorable memoir’ – lightened by the author’s natural gift for conversing. Recommended,” wrote Harp.
Veritas Vincit, another reader, described “The Early Years: A Memoir” as a “heartfelt reflection on a life well lived,” lauding Carrington for “welcoming readers into her life, in all its remarkable detail.”
“After a lifetime of learning and a clear trajectory towards academic success, the end of World War 2 marked a stark shift for the author. Coming into her late teens at that time, the world was changing rapidly, even in her small Kentucky town. While she tried to hang onto her childhood amidst summertime river adventures, learning to ride a bike, family reunions, and fleeting crushes, an unexpected romance was approaching from the horizon,” wrote Vincit.
Carrington was born in a small southern Kentucky town in 1930. She was the firstborn of 11 kids to kind yet low-income parents who faced difficulties in making ends meet.
However, Carrington’s love to learn made it easy for her to attain a prestigious scholarship during her senior year of high school. Life shifted so drastically, pushing her to abruptly choose another path.
Despite not getting a higher education degree or an impressive employment track record, the author’s multifaceted life was filled with extraordinary joy in her 62 years of marriage.
