Lena’s Boys

By Frank Yoder



At the count of three, they let ’er go, and go it did; there was no time for Mom’s prize rooster to get his small flock safely out of harm’s way.

In the pages of Lena’s Boys, Frank Yoder will give you a glimpse of what it was like to be the youngest of four brothers growing up with a widowed mother. Life wasn’t always easy on the County Line road close to Kalona, Iowa, but his mother’s simple faith provided a secure and happy childhood.

Step into the stories about wishing for a Christmas puppy, running over Mom’s prize rooster with a Radio Flyer wagon, and a fly ball that didn’t come down for three days.

Told in a sentimental and sometimes humorous way, these stories will leave you dreaming of a simpler time.
