Mom has a strong sense of honor that pushes her to flee Colorado with her family the day after New Years, 1912. This is the story of how the Moody family creates a new life in Medford, Massachusetts, just outside of Boston.
Colorful characters make the stories come alive. Several incidents get Ralph listed in the "Bad Boy" book despite his responsible character. And his entrepreneurial drive enables him to help the family do far more than make ends meet. What a joyful book... with a tear-jerkingly happy ending!
