Every Life Tells aStory is a memoir of living in the South, detailing the life of Kathy Widener from 1962 until 2019. It describes the life of a country girl who met extraordinary people and had a blessed life while still facing challenges, disruptions, and loss. Eventually, this ordinary country girl became part of a large family when her father remarried, adding four more children and a new stepmother. They became a group of eleven, including Grandma. Through the years, the family experienced lots of humor and some sadness, but it was always sprinkled copiously with love.
