Summary

The inevitable happens—time moves on and we grow older. Instead of our own little children surrounding us, grandchildren take their place. Each new generation lives in a new age of technology, not realizing the changes the generations before theirs has seen and improved for them. 
The cycle of life has changed the prairie also. The endless waves of tall native prairie grass have been reduced to uniform rows of grain crops. The curves of the river had shifted over the decades, eroded by both man and nature. The majestic prairie has been tamed over time. 
In this fourth book of the Butter in the well series, Kajsa Svensson Runeberg, now age seventy-five, looks back at the changes she has experiences on the farm she homesteaded fifty-one years ago. She reminisces about the past, resolves the present situation, and looks toward their future off the farm.

    A collection of Chicago Tribune newspaper articles detailing the case and trial of Drew Peterson, the man convicted of murdering his third wife, Kathleen Savio, and who is widely suspected of being responsible for the disappearance of his fourth wife, Stacy Peterson.In 2004, Kathleen Savio, the third wife of Bolingbrook, Illinois, police officer Drew Peterson, was discovered dead in a bathtub from an apparent drowning. Her death was deemed accidental—at first. In 2007, following the disappearance of Peterson's fourth wife, Stacy, officials reopened the Savio case with Drew as the primary suspect.The Drew Peterson Story: Ripped from the Headlines is a true-crime ebook comprising actual Chicago Tribune articles. By compiling years of original reporting in chronological order, this book preserves the shock of each sordid twist in real time as the story grew from a local curiosity into a national phenomenon (complete with a made-for-TV Lifetime movie starring Rob Lowe).This book captures every detail of the murders and the surrounding media circus, from Peterson's bizarre reality TV stint as a celebrity criminal, to the chilling courtroom testimony of Peterson's brother as he unwittingly assisted with the disposal of a human body. Special attention is paid to the trial itself, which broke legal ground when hearsay testimony from Peterson's fourth wife, recorded before her disappearance, was allowed as evidence. The Chicago Tribune's award-winning staff possesses the unique perspective of having covered this case from beginning to end, and the most fascinating pieces have finally been curated into a single collection of the gruesome facts.
