Wealth Beyond Riches tells the story of a dedicated father and mother of ten children living in the mid 1900’s. The story is reminiscent of the Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House books except that the setting takes place a century later and in the state of Maine, not in the Midwest. I gathered facts of actual events from siblings still living as well as my oldest sister who passed away in 2014. Having a large family created problems and challenges which most families, at that time, avoided. My parents were not able to purchase a home until after five of us ten children were born. Many “modern” conveniences enjoyed by most families came much later in our lives. The real heroes are my parents who sacrificially gave all they had for their kids. If they were still living, however, they would give all the praise to their Savior and guide, Jesus Christ.
