Description du Livre

This is my story of discovering and meeting my great-grandmother through a recently discovered diary she kept from 1944-1958, and the subsequent story of my grandmother and mother growing up in Cicero, Illinois. The story includes alcoholism and poverty, but mainly the resilience, faith and grace of four generations of women. The tale, which began with my great-grandmother's birth in 1853, has humor, pathos, and tragedy, yet is ultimately miraculous in its twists and turns. (And as a small aside to Chicago baseball fans, my great-grandmother's first grandchild happened to marry Bob Kennedy, a White Sox player as well as later Cubs manager; hence his son, Terry Kennedy, a four-time All Star catcher, is one of the many many great-grandchildren she left behind.)
