Irene Spencer

When we usually see these families, they are all smiling and seem happy but this book by Irene Spencer tells the true story of poverty, loneliness, tiredness and a very sad way of life. She was married for 28 years, shared with 9 other wives and had 13 children of her own. She lived in squalor with no electricity, indoor plumbing or proper health care. Very sad book but also revealing.
