From Dawn to Dusk
by Sara McDaniel H. Kemp
Born shortly before the beginning of the Great Depression, Sara Hall Kemp recalls the story of her life, full of success, tragedy and family bonds. At an early age she learns the hard lessons of loss and personal strength. Moving from farm to farm along the Glade near Acworth Georgia, the family was supported by her fathers farming and odd jobs. Farmers were hit hard during the Depression in the 1930s. But for many, farming was the only way their families could be fed. As her family perseveres through countless hardships and tender moments, Sara speaks of the love that holds a family together. It was very hard for farmers children to get an education; everyone had to work. Her determination to finish school was not to be denied. She sometimes had to walk four miles to and from school. Through her military service and later career, Sara stands up for her own convictions. Here, she passes on those convictions and a faith in God to her own family and to the reading audience. Strength and determination taught Sara how to live her own life and put her trust in God. There is much to learn from such a strong woman.
