Well this is a pretty serious book. I know they went to church which provided some respite from their hard life. THere were happy times when Ruth married Dennis,

Dennis "came from a home where kindness was a way of life. I wanted to be in this kind of family. I was proud to join it, and they were happy to have me."

THere was music in the house and James says,

"It was a real American life, the life I'd always dreamed of." She was content: "My soul was full" (chapter 23)
