Sunshine In My Pocket
The vision of happiness, and health, and safety.
Author Jennifer French shares with readers her childhood in this moving and often funny account of growing up as part of the "Second Wave"- three little girls born into a family where the first "set" of children has already reached their teen years. Raising the children are Margaret; a fiercely independent, strong, yet often sick mother described as "one part thoroughbred, two parts mule," and John; a kind, passive, hardworking father whose loyalty falls nothing short of admirable. Glimpses into the past, present, and sometimes future of the family often center around Margaret's increasingly failing health and weave a tale of remarkable courage. Surviving cancer, a house fire, and a frustrating encounter with hospital hierarchy, the family perseveres, finding the good in every evil and in a series of displaced people that they come to know as friends. Readers won't find self-pity here or nail-biting adventure, either. Instead, this is a story of extraordinary love and understanding, and a lesson in teaching children compassion, strength, and Hope. A luminous memoir written with compassion, humor, and just a dash of despair, "Sunshine in my Pocket" is a must-read!
