It is nonfiction. I love nonfiction!
It is history (the Depression years.) I enjoy learning more about the past.
It is personal stories of family and strangers intertangled and woven over the time and mostly within a certain geographical area. I am always wondering about old buildings and the people that built them, used them, lived in them, and what has happened since; this book does a great job of touching on the then and now in terms of place.]

Oh, the book? A Secret Gift by Ted Gup.
