WHITTLESEA, Australia - May 18, 2020 - PRLog -- A good news for readers across the world, recently, the renowned author Elizabeth McCann launched her new book "Marguerite." ThisKindle edition is available on Amazon.com. It is a story of four generations of an enduring family that fought to overcome adversity and to find some joy in simple things.

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.

About the Author–The author is from a small Mid-West community, barely a crossroads. This is where she finds the characters that inhabit her story, their victories, their defeats.

Having married at 19, Elizabeth followed her husband's career in a large corporation first to New York, then on to Australia and South Africa where she completed her M.A. in psychology at the University of Port Elizabeth. He died in 1980. She now resides in a suburb of Melbourne, Australia. Skype and email keep her American friends and family in touch.

"Marguerite" is her first work of fiction, although she likes to write poetry and has published lectures and essays on psychological theory. It was actually the reading of Anais Nin's struggles to publish her journals (some forty years ago!) that encouraged her to try to write herself when she retired! She had maintained a successful psychotherapy practice in Melbourne for 25 years.

Elizabeth's three children live close by and are much appreciated in these later years. There is one grandchild, but, her grandma says, "a really good one!"
