Show Summary Details


 In this chapter, Wilma describes her first remembrance of shame and guilt. She once set up her own shop, and once a poor woman and her child showed up trying to pay for some soap. Wilma didn’t think about the consequences until afterwards, and she was met with guilt for taking money from someone less fortunate. Wilma also details the time that a forest fire ravaged Appalachia, almost destroying her home before the fire was put out.
