Stories Grandma Never Told: Portuguese Women in Californiaby Sue Fagalde Lick
Nearly one million Portuguese Americans live in California, immigrants or the descendants of immigrants who left poverty behind to seek a better life. Stories Grandma Never Told collects the accounts of the women who settled a foreign land, facing a new language, new customs, and new expectations about their roles as wives, mothers, and workers. Here, too, are the stories of their daughters and granddaughters, and their own struggles to reconcile old-country ways and morality with American lives and identity.
With touching honesty, compassion, thoughtfulness, and humor, more than sixty women provide an intimate and unforgettable view of what it means to be Portuguese American. A tribute to women of Portuguese descent, Stories Grandma Never Told also expands our sense of California--its history and its real culture.
