This is a memoir-but reads like a novel with plenty of twists and turns. Now why, you are asking yourself did Miki decide to read a memoir? Well--you see I am only 3 years younger then this author and I lived through the same time period she did. It certainly was confusing back then. Females, including me were brought up to always listen to and agree with the males--our main objective back then (as well as our parents) was for us to become nurses, bookkeepers--but more important to get married and have children. Although I am not Italian I was brought up in a similar manner. I did not know about prejudice or hatred until I hit my early 20's!! Small town living kind of kept you isolated. My Dad, like hers always believed in helping others and was forever joking around! I picked up this trait myself. It was extremely interesting to me to see how Sandra managed to get through all the craziness--stay married (very few did back then)-and remain true to herself. I really think you will enjoy this book--if only to see how the world came to be what it is today! I received a hard covered copy of this book from the author for enjoyment and a possible review.

Sandy tells the story of her family which, in turn, illuminates the melting pot of Eastern Massachusetts. I couldn't put it down!
