"Stuck in My Own Family Tree" is a collection of nostalgic family stories. Starting with a stern Grossmutter, one cousin's struggle to maintain her family in war-torn Europe, exciting births and tragic deaths, all these family members come to life in these pages.
The previous generation of Pat's family helped the Allies win World War II in the twentieth century by patrolling during blackouts and by building fighter planes. One cousin gave his life for our country from injuries sustained at the D-Day invasion.
A succeeding generation, Pat's family of nine, traveled to France for a year of struggle to fit in and learn the language. Children recall their methods of coping with school with a French flavor.
Each new generation produces family stories of their own, some inspiring, some so awesome they are hard to believe, some just plain funny.
Stewart uses her knack for storytelling to pass on tales that will inspire and amuse the next generations. It is a heartwarming trip down memory lane.
