Grandma, Tell Us a Story
In this heartwarming memoir spanning over 60 years, readers will meet the Polish family and lifelong friends of Norene Forma Taylor. The years fly by with humorous and embarrassing recollections of grade school, high school, and four years at the University of Michigan, as the author shares her heartaches and joys as a daughter, wife, mother, and elementary schoolteacher. Real adventure unfolds when her husband, Larry, begins his career with the Federal Bureau of Prisons. Over the years, they both learn that some prison inmates, who have made serious mistakes, are trying their best to return to their families and communities as responsible individuals -- and rash and unscrupulous people aren’t always the ones behind bars. This detailed and touching family history, with its many life lessons, may bring an occasional tear to your eye-- but it promises several unexpected warm smiles as well.
