Item description for The Mayor's Daughter by Delores Gapanowicz...
So many of us have lost contact with the heritage of our families, generations that have gone before as well as those who live in our own time. Life seems to move ever more quickly, and distances can remain great between family members, even though there are more ways than ever to keep in touch these days. Delores Gapanowicz wrote The Mayor's Daughter about her parents because she wanted the grandchildren in her family to have some idea of the life in Eastern Europe before her family emigrated. The stories were told to the author by her parents before they passed away. These tales show that young people on farms in Europe didn't spend their time only milking cows and picking potatoes. They played tricks on friends, went to wedding celebrations and dances, and flirted with other people their age. They also experienced tragedy and loss. Their lives were a mixture of the sweet and bitter, not unlike the lives of people everywhere. Time passes, but human nature doesn't change as quickly. Readers will discover what life was like in rural Eastern Europe before World War I, a way of life that has changed forever. This book retrieves one family's heritage and allows us all to connect with our own.
