Kathleen M. Walsh
My book is about my grandmother's life, but it is much more than just a story about an important person in my life. It is the story of a role model for anyone who faces multiple challenges and rises to the occasion every time. My intent was to show the highs and lows of a truly American life during the early part of the last century. The stark contrasts as well as the similarities between my grandma's life and that of modern contemporaries show that while day-to-day life has changed dramatically in the last century, human experiences like love and loss remain remarkably constant.
