Format: Hardcover
Some immigrants who came to America via New York decided that the rough streets of Brooklyn were no place to raise a child, and sought a better place to stay in Long Island. "In My Mother's House" is a childhood recalling memoir of Stephanie Kaplan Cohen telling her story growing up as the first of a generation of Americans, and places the 1930s and all of the chaos of that time into a fresh light. "In My Mother's House" is something that will connect with many a reader, whether they grew up in the 1930s or 1990s.
