Elizabeth McCann Launched a New Book "Marguerite"
Dear Marguerite is an intimate portrait of a period of American life when the nation was starting to form what would become its modern identity. Set in a small town in the Mid-West, the story begins with a young girl's first years of awareness, as Prohibition takes hold, and later the Great Depression sweeps across the nation. The story finishes in "modern times", when the effects of what began fifty years in the past can be seen clearly.
This 427-pages book will take you to a distinctive and absorbing journey and even transport you to the Great Depression era (a severe worldwide economic depression), which was not only devastating, but harrowing. Cities around the world were hit hard, but America was under extreme economic pressure. The book will provide an important new aspect of the overall thinking of a small town family of America.
