About the Book


Book: Adventures in Poverty
Author: Nancy Bolton
Genre: Memoir
Release Date: July 30, 2019


Faced with eviction, living on union strike pay, our time for making a decision was running out. Where could we go to live with our five small sons? We had few options. The scariest possibility was also the one that fit best with our tiny income. But could we really make such a difficult move? To transport our family, and our mobile home onto a five-acre parcel of rural, undeveloped land? No electricity, no running water, with winter fast approaching. It sounded a little crazy…….

My Review

I found Adventures in Poverty to be a light hearted, yet realistic memoir of one large, young family that find themselves in financial crisis. They make a bold decision to move their small trailer home to the middle of nowhere with no electricity or running water (my father grew up this way, but I have never experienced it) with a bunch of boys! I can't even imagine how difficult that would be for me, but I really enjoyed just the every day way this book was written about ordinary things that took shape into a really inspiring, heartwarming story. It reminded me how joy can be found in any circumstance and in the face of any challenge. This book reminded me of the fun a family can have in the simple, every day time they spend together. Being tight in the financial department with my family, and having to scrunch from paycheck to paycheck, I found a lot of encouragement in reading the strength and faith in the Lord this family put forward to live life to the fullest. I also enjoyed the humorous tales of trying to DIY, raise livestock, and more. Overall, I think any reader could enjoy this inspiring, humorous, and realistic look at one family's crisis that turned into a beautiful tale about family and what really matters in life.



I received a complimentary copy of this book, and all opinions given are entirely my own.

More from Nancy

Sometimes life hands out an unexpected challenge, and the direction you mapped out for your family comes up against a big roadblock. And there you are, trying to navigate back to a path that makes sense. One that would be as close to the previous path as you can get. But our only options led us in directions far away from what we were used to. Faced with eviction, living on union strike pay, our time for making a decision was running out.
