In Aunt Mary's Guide to Raising Children the Old-Fashioned Way, Amy S. Peele reflects on her childhood and discovers memories both painful and funny that yield meaningful life lessons. In this book, Peele delves into her sometimes chaotic, sometimes simple childhood, and reflects on the peace of mind she experienced at Lake Wawasee every summer. After you read this memoir, you'll be compelled to look on the map to see if there really is a lake called Wawasee. You'll want to be invited into Aunt Mary's garage at 5 PM for Scotch and cards. You'll relate to Peele's underlying message: that parents and relatives do the best they can with the circumstances life sets before them.
