My parents met at 11, married at 19 and raised 7 kids on a dime as my mom would say. This fast reading ebook was origianally written, printed & hand bound as Christmas gifts to their children. I thought I was getting a box of fudge & I was completely impressed by what they accomplished.
My folks completely made each book by hand and their process is in a YouTube video titled “How Patty & Jake Published Their Book“. It’s short & sweet and gives you a glimpse of my moms humor and my dads attention to detail. We hope you love it & we would love your feedback.
My mom passed from ovarian cancer 4 Christmases ago & she would LOVE knowing you read her book and had a good laugh.
The photos are not included in the download but I’ve posted them on my blog. Click Here to see the photos.
Once you buy the book, you’ll receive an email with the downloadable PDF book.
I enjoyed this book! Wonderful story that takes you back to a different time…..told in a down to earth manner with a great sense of humor! Thanks so much for sharing your parents’ story!

Patty and Jake Jacobson’s book Dimes Were Hard to Come By is a heartfelt memoir of life in the 1970s. With exquisite voice, Patty has a comfortable way of making the reader feel part of the family. Jake’s commentaries add perspective and depth. Together they completely capture the honest and endearing characteristics of family.
