Author Ruth G. Claxton brings an honest, romantic personal tale in “The Early Years.”

In the book, Ruth Claxton shares her own experiences that showcase the difficulties, disappointments, and happiness of her multifaceted life and the exciting love story between her and her soulmate.

Author Ruth G. Claxton, who writes under the pen name Rachel G. Carrington, brings a well-written and romantic story of her unexpected discovery of the man who will become her soulmate in her book, “The Early Years.”

In the book, Carrington lays no claim to lofty jobs, higher education, or grand accomplishments except for a love-filled, multifaceted, family-oriented, poverty-to-plenty life. In The Early Years, the first in a series, Carrington shares her story.

As a young teenager, just entering high school in the small town of Denton, Kentucky, Carrington planned to attend college and become a teacher. With coursework geared toward college attendance, she was offered a lucrative scholarship that would help her to attain her goal. However, it took only a single event to send her down a different path. 

She met a returned World War II veteran attempting to pick up the pieces after finding his marriage in irreparable shambles and his children gone. As he struggled, Carrington was there, and they pulled together to clear the many hurdles before them.

In this memoir, she tells the story of their journey and how their love and dedication for each other kept moving them forward. Filled with the joys, disappointments, and struggles of a couple, The Early Years narrates how the love of the heavenly Father was the continuous thread that bound Carrington’s life together.

In a review on Amazon, Melisa, one of the readers, said it was extremely difficult to put the book down because she wanted to hear more about Carrington’s parents, her family, and more about Brad, the love of her life.  

“Rachel has such a way of making you feel like you were right there with her, seeing, hearing, smelling, and feeling the things she went through. Oh, and some of the characters she wrote about – Brad, his son Bradley Jr. and the mean old Landlady in Cincinnati,” wrote Melisa. 

Willie, another reader, stated in a review, “I couldn’t stand to have to put it down, and I kept looking to see how much more I had left because finally, I found such an interesting book. I was dreading seeing the story end.”

Carrington was born in a small southern Kentucky town in 1930. She was the first-born of eleven children to loving but strict, low-income parents who struggled to keep food on the table and could afford little more than that. Attending school and earning a high school diploma was a given but, lack of funds made further education impossible. 

Rachel’s desire to learn made it easy to comply with her parents’ demands of school attendance, and, as a result, she was offered a prestigious scholarship during her senior year of high school. A common wad of paper changed things drastically, causing her to abruptly choose another path. 

Though void of higher education, fantastic employment, or honors earned, Rachel’s multifaceted life was filled with a special kind of joy in her sixty-two years of marriage. 

Rachel now makes her home in Ocala, Florida. Besides her early life in Kentucky, she has previously resided in Butler County, Ohio, and Honolulu (Waikiki), Hawaii.
