Nunzilla Was My Mother and My Stepmother Was a Witch
by Terry Silver
"Nunzilla Was My Mother and My Stepmother Was a Witch" is author Terry Gelormino Silver's memoir of growing up in three different orphanages in Ohio during the Great Depression and World War II era. Two of the orphanages where she lived were run by a strict order of nuns, and the third orphanage was non-sectarian. Think "Oliver Twist" meets "Angela's Ashes," and you've got the idea.
