The homeschooling Mom who blogs at Living, Learning and Loving Life confesses she “read the entire Preface with tears in my eyes as Martha Holoubek Fitzgerald writes about her parents.” Our thanks to Amanda Chambers for her review.
I love books like this because they are rich in history. … The historical aspect I found fascinating was the mention of salaries and the cost of items. In 1937, Joe spent $3 a night on the hotel next to the Clinic. He later mentions paying eight hours salary, a whopping 25¢, on a movie back in Nebraska. And three hours salary on a glass of beer. Meanwhile, in New Orleans, Alice is spending 23 hours salary on a movie! Later, Alice calls her $10 monthly paycheck “huge.”
