Raising Rebeca Books

In the last episode, Rebeca promised to tell you about a very special woman born way back in 1894. Now her story plays into the one unfolding on this podcast 130 years later.

Rebeca's formative years were spent on the family's long-held farm in Northwest Tennessee, often under the care and tutelage of her grand-aunt Retta. It's from Aunt Retta that Rebeca learned her love of stories and how they can change people and society for the better, and a lot about how to care for the living beings around her, whether plants, animals, or people.

How does Aunt Retta, born in 1894, play into today's story? Listen and find out.
