Tommytown is a composite of time, people, and attitudes during a period that has long been in exile; when boys ran free outside, laughing their way to another adventure with no thought of danger from adults or even nature. The reader will travel back to the year 1955 and become part of Helen Foreman's world. It was a time when there was no public assistance and laws protecting women's rights were non-existent. This 35-year-old mother with eight children makes another lonely decision as she struggles to provide them with food and shelter. No sorcerer is going to wave a magic wand to make all her troubles disappear.
