The Great Depression of 1929 changed lives across America. For young Estelle Friedland and her family, it meant there was no money for shoes or rent. Her father, a widower, lost his business, the banks closed, and the stocks he had invested in were worthless. Mommo’s Story is the engaging true story of a three-year-old girl growing up after her mother’s death during the Depression, when her father was forced to separate all three siblings and send them to live with different aunts. Friedland writes with candor and humor of the difficult times she faced and the funny things that happened on the way to adulthood in this engaging, heartwarming memoir.
