From the Lighthouse

Front Cover
Dutton, 1972 - Corporate state - 265 pages
The river, the lighthouse, and her family are all that thirteen- year-old Weezie Bloom has ever wanted or needed. Not so for Ma, who, without warning, leaves forever. Healing is slow, but the family survives, guided by their father's strength and love. Weezie narrates the changing seasons and evolving moods of a year without Ma--a transforming year at the twilight of the Great Depression. With language as glorious as the autumn landscape on the banks of the Hudson, Weezie's richly textured story will appeal to generations of readers, transporting them to the lighthouse that Weezie proudly calls home.
