This book is a gutsy exposé of a Polish immigrant family, its trials, struggles, disagreements and connections. It runs a gamut of issues from mental illness, homosexuality, individualism, marriage, poverty, Catholic religion and success into an interesting chronology of the Godzisz family over the 20th century. Although listed as an independent author, John Paul Godges is an experienced editor and a fine writer. There are many philosophical musings embedded in the text and the pride of the Godges family shines through the clouds of discord.

I received this as a Goodreads First Read in exchange for an honest review.
