"It Can Be Done"    by:  Margaret Deffenbaugh Head

From the book Jacket: "It Can Be Done" is a story of love, courage, determination and the ability to make do with very little.

Set on the Kansas Prairie in the early 1900's, "It Can Be Done" is the story of a truly extraordinary woman who overcomes all odds to raise seven children in the midst of poverty and hardship.
Widowed at forty-six with six children still living at home, Lynne Miller Deffenbaugh faced challenges that would have caused many a mother to give up. Her unflagging faith and determination to
prevail in the face of staggering odds is at once inspiring and heartbreaking.

This story is lovingly told by Lynne's youngest daughter, Margaret Deffenbaugh Head, to honor the memory of her mother.
The Deffenbaugh family lived primarily in the Mayfield and Milan area.
