Item description for Good? Grief! by Cathy Temple Eichelberger...
In Good? Grief , the Temple children attempt to build a fort to play in and embark on some very precarious adventures that, for them, was 'just life'. The sixties were years of uncertainty and turmoil for the United States as, right at one hundred years after the Civil War, racial violence threatened to divide the nation yet again. The country sat breathless before brand new televisions to witness the violence of a war in Viet Nam that was killing their sons, as their daughters' skirts got shorter and shorter. But in another world of Powersville in northern Missouri, four children were living in an escapade all their own and knew very little about outside society. In Good? Grief , the Temple children attempt to build a fort to play in and embark on some very precarious adventures that, for them, was 'just life'. Join Cathy with her orange hair and freckles as she learns the valuable lessons God has to teach throughout every 'just life' day. She and her siblings will delight readers of any age or gender as the innocence of childhood is brought back to mind with all its fun and adventure. Find out just exactly what Good? Grief can be.

It should be made into a Disney movie... Aug 25, 2008
I just finished your book; what a marvelous coming of age story. Sue said it was strange reading a book about somebody you know personally, while I could actually hear your Dad's voice, your voice, Barbara, Mark, Carol & Robin exactly as I remember you guys. I can sure tell that you are family with the "familiar family sayings" you quote in the book. I know the cars first hand, the geography, and most of the characters in a way most readers do not. Simply put, I thought it was an excellent book.
It is a great tribute to your family and your faith. I think it would make an excellent Disney movie; now all you need is a script; a director; producers, actors, set location, set, wardrobe, a whole lot of money & so on. Again, well done!

It's a miracle that I lived to tell the tale of my childhood. Apr 18, 2008
The beginning sentence from the book by "Mrs. Ike", as we call her in classroom, well describes the many perilous yet humorous adventures of a 9 year girl and her siblings growing up in rural Missouri.
I was privileged to hear the author herself read the book out loud to our class. The class would be the quietest of the day while she was reading from the book about her adventures. I saw the looks of dis-belief come to their faces several times. They would beg her ... read more, please finish the chapter, or ask do we have time to start the next chapter? She would read right up to the bell then kids would leave the class groaning because they wouldn't get to hear anymore until the next reading day.
I recommend this book to all enjoy a laugh out loud kind of book. It holds interest and fasination for children as well as adults.
