Leave the 21st century behind and return with Virble to the small towns of Cedar Creek and Pioneer and Collegeville. Virble Kathleen Mabry Yeadon lives with her husband in San Jose, California. She is mother of three and grandmother of nine young adults. She started life in Oklahoma as Virble, the seventh of eight children of which five survived. She remained the baby of the family when a younger sister died soon after birth. As an adult, Kathy desired to memorialize her childhood for her kids and grandchildren, but as a divorced and working mother for eighteen years, she always ran out of time. When she retired, she registered for an adult writing class. The book you are looking at, started out as a collection of writing assignments, each a vignette covering a cherished childhood memory as seen through the eyes of little Virble or young Kathy. Those short stories delighted other class members and the instructor insisted that she write until a book was in hand.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
T. C.s comments  Jan 30, 2009
I enjoyed " VIRBLE" from the standpoint of growing up in the same time period. We had hardships and disapointments also. I also enjoyed the first hand account of the " Grapes of Wrath " journey. I never got to California until I was about 40, so I enjoyed the teen years of a young girl growing up in the promised land. I could identify with wanting a certain pair of shoes, or in my case certain jeans or shirts.
My wife also read the book and said she enjoyed every bit of it. I guess she could identify even more with Virble on new dresses and helping her mom with the many chores they had.

A child's perspective of life through adulthood  Jan 2, 2009
VIRBLE is a stroll down memory lane from a child's perspecive as she grows into adulthood. She is honest, poor, happy and faces life as it is handed to her. You'll enjoy the happiness of innocence and the lazy days of the late 1930's through the '50's.

Good Read!  Dec 24, 2008
Growing up as a native Californian, I had no concept of life beyond my middle class neighborhood. Now that both my parents are gone, I wish I had paid more attention to their childhoods and what made them the people they had become. Virble fullfills that long held wish--with its colloquialisms of the region and times, and vignettes of a much simpler, yet harder, life as seen through a child's eyes. And, like its charming conclusion, it made me realize that no matter the circumstances of my upbringing, one is always rich with experience, friendship and love. Can't wait to share it with my husband's uncle, who is also part Indian and was raised in Oklahoma.
 
Virble  Dec 20, 2008
Virble is a great book for young and old since it is from the perspective of a 6 yr. old. I loaned the book to my 92 yr. old mother and she thoroughly enjoyed it. Of course we have a genuine interest in the book as the author is my cousin.
