The autobiography of Phebe Eudocia Hills in 19th century rural upstate New York (Brookfield, Madison County). When James and Chloe built their little Cape Cod cottage in the narrow Beaver Creek Valley they hoped to raise several strong sons to carry on the family name but instead they had five daughters; Lucy, Frances, Sarah Ann, Phebe Eudocia and Amelia. Jimmy then bragged that it wasn't every man who could have five darn good looking girls and he looked forward to the day when he would have five strong sons-in-law to help him in the fork factory.
