A quaint book about growing up as a young Brethren girl in the Nebraska Territory before the 20th Century. While many parts made me giggle because of my own experience with Brethren tradition - like thinking that musical instruments in the church was of the devil - some sections really made me consider the witness of the Brethren in areas of peace and community in a serious way. I was also attentive to the places where gender roles created a lack of opportunities for young girls, which is an unfortunate testimony to our Brethren past, and remains in our Brethren present. My main motivation for reading this memoir was to contribute to my thesis work about the Prayer Covering, which was highlighted in Virginia's desire for a bonnet, and then in the gift of a covering before her first Love Feast.
