This is a charming book as told by a Jewish grandmother to her granddaughter. It is the grandmother's life story. It starts out in 1985 but quickly reverts to 1915. Though the telling went thru the depression years and they were not necessarily a wealthy family it was not a sad book about the depression but one of a family, though at times dysfunctional as all families can be regardless of faith. I enjoyed the story that Anita Diamant wove of Addie Baum and her life. A good, fast read. I recommend this book to others.
