Dog Bone Soup by Bette Stevens



Whether or not You Grew Up in the 1950s and 60s, you’ll find DOG BONE SOUP (Historical Fiction) to be soup for the soul. In this coming-of-age novel, Shawn Daniels’s father is the town drunk. Shawn and his brother Willie are in charge of handling everything that needs to be done around the ramshackle place they call home—lugging in water for cooking and cleaning, splitting and stacking firewood…But when chores are done, these resourceful kids strike out on boundless adventures that don’t cost a dime. DOG BONE SOUP is the poignant tale of a dysfunctional family struggling to survive in America in the 50s and 60s, when others were living The American Dream.

    Hi Bette, I am so pleased to see Dog Bone Soup here. I thoroughly enjoyed Pure Trash and have Dog Bone Soup on my kindle waiting for me. You capture the feeling of those days — which I remember — remarkably well. Enjoy your tour! Thank you, Susanne for presenting.
