From Publishers Weekly In this candid memoir written with her brother Robert, author of Crunching Gravel: A Wisconsin Boyhood in the Thirties, Nell Peters looks back on her life with an irreverent humor that has clearly brought her through some tough times. Born in 1932, she grew up with five siblings on a small farm in northern Wisconsin, where she enjoyed a tomboy existence. Early on, she felt sexually attracted to both males and females but initiated her first sexual experience with a boy just before she jonied the WACs after high school. She left the service when she discovered she was pregnant with twins, and she returned to her family, barely supporting herself and her two sons by working at a series of menial jobs. She admits that, during this stressful time, she abused her sons physically and emotionally. She later married and bore four more children, before embarking on several relationships with women.

Review “What a story! . . . the power of Nell’s story is her remarkable candor. As if she were talking to her closest friend, she shares her most intimate thoughts and experiences.”—Frank Denton, Wisconsin State Journal

"Nell's Story is as raw as a Wisconsin winter; its bright, bold honesty chills to the bone."—A. Manette Ansay, author of Vinegar Hill

"For Nell Peters, life is a garage sale, full of treasures amid the tough times. Gutsy Nell is a witty and earthy raconteur."—Karen Kringle, author of Vital Ties

“As a fascinating exercise in obscure lives retrieved, as a joint effort in painful and exultant memory, this rich memoir has the playful seriousness and inventive charm which characterizes the work of Robert Peters, joined in this case with his sister Nell.”—Thomas Keneally, author of Schindler’s List

"Courageous and important writing."—Merry K. Anderson, Book Lovers
