Fran Grubb's was a horrific childhood. The fifth of seven children born to a vicious alcoholic who beat his wife and children, Fran spent her early years in a series of rattletrap cars and ramshackle huts as her family followed the seasons as migrant farm workers.
It was a hollow existence: nomadic, extreme poverty and deprivation, with no comfort. Fran's father sold her older brother for five dollars, murdered her infant sister, and sexually molested his other daughters.
Fran could be excused is she were bitter. But she is not. Even as she watched her mother and older sisters run away from the family, disappearing one by one, even as she sought to make sense of her circumstances, Fran was able to do what her father could not--love, enjoy life, embrace God.
There is more to Fran's story. There is wickedness and despair. But there is also courage and hope. And a happy ending too. If you choose to read her story, prepare to be inspired.
