Diane Lane will appear to sign copies of her book,
I Loved Her Enough
Sunday, July 28, 10:00 - 12:00 pm

“The year was 1933 when a little girl from New York City came to Delaware as part of the Fresh Air Fund,” Diane Lane said of her mother’s best friend. “Little did she know that her life was about to change forever.” Lane’s mother’s best friend, Eileen Wharton Spence, was 5 years old when she left her city life of poverty for the summer and spent her time at Slaughter Beach with her Delaware family, Bayard and Sarah Wharton. Knowing that she will soon return to her life of poverty, Eileen did not know that family ties were about to be created in the most unusual way. “We didn’t expect to fall in love with this girl,” Lane recalls Bayard saying. “We only intended to watch over her for a few weeks.”

Lane has taken this heartwarming story and made it into a book titled, “I Loved Her Enough.”

The book, which takes place during the Great Depression, covers an entire year of Eileen’s journey from poverty to a loving family. “It covers a year in the life of a little girl who has her life changed by the events that happen and the choices that are made,” Lane said. “You meet the adults who cared for her and the emotions that surfaced as surprising twists and turns are provided by love, luck and fate.”
