Memoir of a childhood in mid-twentieth-century

Be transported to another era as you follow the author's journey from her birth in Chicago until her wedding day in St. Petersburg, Florida, twenty-one years later.
Witty dialogue and an even flowing descriptive narrative capture the spirit and emotions of the time—a time so different, yet so much the same. The author's insightful comments and easy humor engage the reader in what is, above all, a love story.
