Publishers Description
It's 1965, and Annie Peters is just eight-years-old when her mother is committed full-time to a mental health institution. Uprooted by thier mother's illness, Annie and her siblings find themselves torn between a Catholic-run orphanage and the final remnants of thier shattered home. But nothing could have prepared the nuns of St. Vincent's Home for five vivacious Peters children, whose adolescence comes to mirror a much larger upheaval between the evolving Catholic institutions of the sixties and a burgeoning American pop culture. Vividly portrayed from an outspoken, often comical perspective, Popcorn Poppin' on the Apricot Tree celebrates an unusual coming of age story with a nostalgic look back at a bittersweet time in American history, and the frayed but unbroken ties of enduring family love.

Reviews - What do customers think about POPCORN POPPIN ON THE APRICOT TREE?

A Touching Book  Jul 31, 2008
I loved this book. While it told Annie's tale it also brought back many of my own childhood memories when times were simplier. Annie and her family showed tremendous strength and love for one another throughout their mother's illness, their devotion is inspiring.
A great book for adults and children.
Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree by Faith Paulus  Jun 3, 2008
This was a book I didn't want to put down until I had finished it. Faith has a way of "weaving a tale" and I was fascinated by her true stories and antics of Anne Peters and her siblings. A book to be enjoyed by both adults and children!
