“There’s a little Walt Whitman in there too, the tenderness without foolish sentiment toward ordinary people.” --Bill Holm, Minnesota author and poet, winner of The Minnesota Book Award.

This is a collection of story/memoir that describes three generations of women on the maternal side of the author’s immigrant German Catholic family. These women—most of them, except for the one, Mary, who escaped to become a nun—were astonishingly idiosyncratic, not to say “weird,” and Sheppard Williams delineates them with understanding, deep love and amusement. She tells you about all their glories and all their warts. The tone of the collection ranges from tragic to hilarious.
