By Haven Kimmel
Whilst Haven Kimmel was once born in 1965, Mooreland, Indiana, was once a sleepy little hamlet of 3 hundred humans. Nicknamed "Zippy" for how she could bolt round the condo, this small woman was once possessed of massive eyes or even higher ears. during this witty and lovingly informed memoir, Kimmel takes readers again to a time whilst small-town the United States was once stuck within the amber of the blameless postwar period--people helped their buddies, went to church on Sunday, and saved barnyard animals of their backyards.
Laced with nice storytelling, sharp wit, dead-on observations, and moments of sheer pleasure, Haven Kimmel's straight-shooting portrait of her early life provides us a heroine who's splendidly candy and sly as she navigates the quirky grownup international that surrounds Zippy.
