Mary Emma & CompanyeBook - 2013
The protagonist, Mary Emma Moody, widowed mother of six, has taken her family east in 1912 to begin a new life. Her son, Ralph, then thirteen, recalls how the Moodys survive that first bleak winter in a Massachusetts town. Money and prospects are lacking, but not so faith and resourcefulness. ""Mother"" in Little Britches and Man of the Family, Mary Emma emerges fully as a character in this book, and Ralph, no longer called ""Little Britches, "" comes into his own. The family's run-ins with authority and with broken furnaces in winter are evocative of a full and warm family leaf.
