This book is about my parents, Eliot and Priscilla Vestner, their Victorian childhood; their courtship, marriage, love and survival through the upheavals of the twentieth century; It is also about their family roots and how those roots influenced their lives and mine. Three main themes run through the story: the changing shape of the family; a passion for public service; and embarking on a new journey in life, an adventure. The story is told as a combination of history and memoir.
