Freddie Mae Baxter's "The Seventh Child" is as much a guide to having a meaningful life as it is a personal story. Nonetheless, Baxter's charming recollections indicate a happy life, full of simple pleasures, needs and desires.

Lacking many material possessions, families were closer, and friends were for life. In the '40s, young Freddie Mae moved to New York, hoping for a better life.
