Zarah Petri was just a little girl when her family left Hungary to find
a new life in Canada in the 1920s. She showed spunk and a great
imagination that would serve her well as a new immigrant and young
married woman. Zarah and her family lived through the Depression, and
she learned to make ends meet in any way she could, even bending the
law if necessary. Her son John writes this touching memoir, told in the
first person, in Zarah's own unique voice. Her remembrances are
sometimes funny, sometimes sad but always entertaining.
