A tender, memory-preserved record of growing up in America's Great Depression. Four-year-old Annette Sanasack wakes to consciousness in a tiny Midwestern, Catholic, largely French-speaking town. By the time the novel ends, Annie is six years old and readers have witnessed, from her short-statured but perceptive vantage point, her family’s spiritual struggles through adversity.
A young girl shares her version of what she saw and experienced during the Great Depression. Through her eyes, we witness how gender roles, family relationships, financial status, spiritual struggles and stereotypes play out in a small town during the early 1930s. The country was in a huge economic downturn, much like we are facing today. It was a time of incredible hopelessness and of incredibly defiant hope. The descriptive dialogue makes one feel they are right there with Annette Sanasack, in the tiny town of Beaupassay, as she navigates expectations, roles and relationships.
