Another enjoyable listen from Ann Tatlock. Ann has a wonderful gift of historical storytelling that brings to life the history of our parents and grandparents. In these days of economic trial, Ann reminds us how fortunate we are to be living in this wonderful country of wealth, prosperity and freedom. This thanks to our forefathers who endured the unthinkable and the blessings of God. We need to remember how fortunate we are and this book will do just that. "Room of My Own" is most enjoyable and highly recommended.

I never cease to be amazed at the horror and hatred that fellow human beings are able to feel towards one another . . . in the midst of one of the saddest, most devastating times in the history of our country, the Great Depression, it seems that it either brought out the BEST in people . . . or the worst . . . so when Ginny's aunt, uncle and their children come to live with them, after her uncle lost his job, Ginny had to give up her room . . . Ginny's family sacrificed, loved and demonstrated the BEST during the Great Depression. . . But when the WORST comes out and evil resides in those in power, those who are sworn to protect us, untold damage is done . . . Ann Tatlock always makes you think, when you read/listen to her books . . . I, for one, am not a fan of unions . . . but I believe that as Americans, we have the right to form unions, the right to fair wages, a right to safe work environments . . . and if it were not for unions, in the beginning, many factories would have had no incentive to give their employees fair pay or safe work conditions . . . I greatly enjoyed the story of relationship between Ginny's father and mother . . . her father, Dr. Eades, goes out to treat the homeless at Hobo Town, and her mother, worries every single time that he goes . . . and when her father, one day, says he is taking their daughter, Ginny, (thirteen years old) with him, she is beside herself . . . but off they go . . . thus begins the hard and glorious lessons of giving . . . and loving . . . in ways that Ginny never knew existed before . . . even when the danger escalated, Dr. Eades continued to go to Hobo Town, not only to treat their illnesses, but to sing and visit with the people there . . .and when Ginny asked him why, he said, it makes me happy. Those words stuck.
