Leaving his family’s troubles behind, he rises into a place of power and respect as a homebuilder in the booming city of Portland. But as the Great Depression tightens its grip, John becomes resigned to watching his family slip into despair as his ability to provide for them collapses along with the economy. He wonders whether they will be able to recover. Decades later, a deep recession descends across the country.

Following the breakup of her marriage and receipt of yet another pink slip, Bonnie finds that she must reinvent her life and discover meaning in a new world."A Memoir of the Depression" is a bittersweet story of lives derailed by economic collapse and family turmoil.show more
