Format: Paperback
Although terrified by what she must do, thirteen year old Billie Leclair uses her wits and prestigious memory to save her family from starvation during the Great Depression of the 1930's. A time when there was 25% unemployment Billie and her sister struggle to cope with their mother's fundamental religion and their father's alcoholism. They are evicted from their home. Transients they move into furnished rooms, a cheap motel, an empty store. Among their always temporary neighbors are a collection of fascinating characters:a bootlegger, a young girl imported from Greece to marry an old man, a polish widow managing the rectory of a charismatic young priest, a jewess who escapes Nazi Germany, and others struggling to survive the depression.
