A joyous memoir of early 20th Century life in the small mining town of Franklin, New Jersey. From flowers to influenza, immigrants to imagination, this happy read recalls life at a sometimes simpler, sometimes stark, time in the life of America. More
Miners risked their lives on a daily basis. The immigrant families formed the backbone of the community. And growing up in the high times of the roaring 20s to the thick of the Great Depression was an adventure of day-by-day hardships and heart songs.
In her debut memoir, Mary D. Brady brings out the vibrancy found in small things, like violets dotting the landscape. With actual original recipes for the staples of the working poor, and reflection on their struggles, Transitions offers a real taste of American life. With the author's recall of hard times tempered by joy, and appreciation of the human experience, Transitions becomes a treasured visit to another place and time.
