Poverty, Puberty, & Patriotism: A Dayton Girl Grows Up During World War II by Ruth Kibler Peck – A Gripping Biography on Life as a Teen Girl during WW2

August 6, 2019 – A World War is the worst time to grow up.  Trauma accompanies it as in no other time — death and destruction, fear and scarcity — it affects a child’s life forever.  “Poverty, Puberty, & Patriotism: A Dayton Girl Grows Up During World War II,” written by Ruth Kibler Peck, is the true story of her life as a young girl growing up in the boom-town city of Dayton, Ohio, after the Great Depression tapers out and WW2 with all its horrors begins.

Having only her father’s insufficient office salary as family income, the Kiblers endured a stressful life in a primitive government trailer camp where fire and her mother’s near-death illness further challenged their daily life.  Resilience to adversity characterized this family who pulled through, participating in the war effort and even keeping tabs on erupting battles and the world locale of each.  Despite all this turmoil, Ruth Ann manages the typical activities of teens of that time, enjoying school activities, new friends, and music of the 1940’s.

“Poverty, Puberty, & Patriotism: A Dayton Girl Grows Up During World War II” is a biography with the target reader base being adults and young adults. One can correlate this to the Anne Frank story — teenage girls, innocent youngsters caught within the tumultuous years of world war.  The author wrote this compelling book about a difficult time when family circumstances were overcome simply by taking life in stride with faith and perseverance, never giving up on hope for the future.

Ruth Kibler Peck first published “Poverty, Puberty, & Patriotism” by Xlibris, and then Toplink selected it for republishing.  This book especially enchanted the folks in nursing homes — it was passed around so much it became dog-eared throughout. Dog-ears are personal acclaims for well written, fascinating books — and this book is certainly one of those.  The works of Laura Ingalls Wilder influenced Ruth Ann in writing this book.
