5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Read, March 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Perhaps I am drawn to this story because I grew up with a grandmother who often had us traipsing through cemeteries, hunting for the names and dates that would fill in the blanks of her family research. All we knew about our ancestors were dates of birth and death and where they were buried.

I always wanted to know more about their stories and in this book Barbara Walsh was able to put those pieces together to tell the tale of a major event in her family's past. At the same time she weaves in the details of her father's childhood. The transition between the two stories is not jarring and not hard to follow as can sometimes happen.
