Kate Mayfield has written a light and interesting memoir of growing up in a funeral home in Kentucky in the ’60’s. Her story portrays herself as a young girl and her family maintaining a funeral business and living above the funeral parlor. Mayfield paints a rich, yet funny, family atmosphere with its social taboos and traditions of the time. Full of character and whimsy. My how times have changed!
