When Gianforte brings her recollections to the page, you will step right into a 1950's neighborhood situated along a Midwestern leafy avenue. You will see friendly neighbors visiting on front porches and children riding by on bicycles. You will open the oval-glass front door of one house in particular, a white Dutch colonial, to meet its three residents. ere, two serious, older parents display the deepest love for their young daughter even as they wrestle with their
own inevitable idiosyncrasies and resistance to change. Through that daughter's sentimental memoir, you will come to love this little family and to admire the values that she distills in gentle style.
