Overview

Barbara promised her father to keep Brewster Family Dry Cleaner open. She says it is her ‘calling’, but it has become her obsession–and not the only one.



The once family friendly neighborhood is changing, but it is the only home Barbara has ever known. Blessed with two daughters and a loving and understanding mother and husband, what will it take for her to see that her Real Treasure is right in front of her?



Written from the viewpoint of Maggie, nine years old and big sister to Sophie, seven, life in a decaying Ohio downtown springs to life in all its wonder and harsh reality.



Another stunning piece of Americana from Carol Kehlmeier.

Editorial Reviews

Woolyswagon.com - Robin Wolstenholme
Carol's characters have depth and clarity. Multifaceted layers of depth surface each time you reread this book. The decay of inner cities is depicted within a charming, yet honest story depicting the flaw in people created by situations both present and past. Carol's child voice is true and clear. She is one of the best emerging authors of Americana.

    Another great work by Ms. Kehlmeier. The voice of young Maggie is spot on. Such great insight into yet another bit of Americana. You are right there with Maggie when all the action happens. Brilliant.
