A slyly funny and heart-warming tribute to childhood before technology. . . The last day of the family’s annual visit to the farm is filled with intrigue. Grandma is questioned, a long-forgotten book of letters is revealed, and Operation Finders-Keeper is set into motion. Still, it takes the trip home to finally uncover the answers Randy Ray’s daughter is seeking.
Best described as slyly funny and heart-warming, That’s How It Was: Operation Finders Keepers is uniquely written in letter format. Written from a ten-year-old boy’s perspective, Randy Ray’s letters prove to be captured moments in time just waiting to be discovered by his daughters thirty-seven years later. These treasured memories allow his daughters to get to know the boy who became their father.
