book. I lived on Capitol Hill during the 1970's and 1980's, and always
suspected there must have been a rich past life beyond the congressional aides, and the commuter traffic.
Meet bedrock families like the Schroeders, the Zurhorsts, and the Tappans!
Visit maiden aunties, take dinner with the rector and call on fashionable relatives in LeDroit Park.
It's life in sight of the Capitol dome, but a world apart from it.
The seeds of this past have sprouted. Capital Hill, is again, resembling the neighborhood of Mary Gray's memories.
Families, aunties, neighbors, playgrounds, corner stores, lives all flourishing under the Dome.
You'll love this funny tender remembrance of life as you hoped it might have been.
A very enjoyable read, as Mary has mastered the art of conversational prose. You feel as if she is right there next to you, telling her story.
