By Pam Reinig

Register Editor

 

A well-documented family history needn’t be a dry read with limited audience appeal. In fact, as former Elkader resident Larry Gamble has proven, a collection of family stories can read like a page-turning novel with unexpected twist, turns and tidbits—especially if the writer is as candid and forthcoming as Gamble. He doesn’t flinch from sharing stories that others might be reluctant to disclose, which makes his book all the more readable by people not even related to him.

A house with lights glowing through the windows, smoke blowing from the chimney, blankets strewn around the living room, the aroma of supper cooking in the kitchen, and love felt throughout.  This is what we cherish most, especially during November, the month of giving thanks. It’s not coincidental that November is also National Adoption Month, a time to promote awareness of the number of children in foster care who are waiting for a forever home.
