Lake Shore

Hello Dear Reader,
The House that the Halls moved into in Lake Shore was half brick, half adobe. There was an added lean-to made of wood. Because the bootleggers had had their still in the living room, the floor was torn up. The ceilings in the house were fifteen feet high; the walls were dark, peeling, and crumbling. There were none of the conveniences the family had enjoyed in Provo—no inside water, no electricity, and no bathroom. To top it all off there were chicken feathers everywhere.

Grandpa (Laning) Hall was called back to work about the time the family was moving. The work offered was far distant which meant that he would be gone for long periods of time. Grandma (Caroline) Hall was left alone with the children to face who knew what.
