My Family, My Self: the growing up years by Sharon Ann Thorne

This is my first book and is intended for family and close friends.

The older I get the more I regret that I didn't ask my parents and grandparents more about their lives. My grandmothers were in their 20s when women got the vote. Did they care? What did they think about that? Nana's father died before she was born. Her mother had to raise six young children in a small town in Texas in the late 19th century. How did she manage? To the dismay of her parents, my mother eloped at 18 instead of going on to Stanford where she had been admitted. Grandpa lost his mother at a young age and gained a stepmother that he apparently didn't like. How did my grandparents meet and what attracted them to each other? What kind of weddings did they have? My questions are endless. I'll never get them answered. The stories would be precious to know.

In this spirit I offer these family stories for readers I know and for all others in the future.
