Reviews

Set in the years of the Great Depression, World War II, and the Post-War Era, this engaging story follows the life of Gabrielle Picard, a weaver in the great Ponemah Mill in Taftville, Connecticut. Work in the mill allows her family to participate in the American dream. The photographs are remarkable. Gay dancing on the dirt pile where their home is being built exemplifies the character of this heartwarming book.

Dale Plummer, Norwich City Historian and Author of Norwich (Images of America).

What an intriguing story about one family's immigration in 1924---to a new world and better life. Filled with insights about their years in Taftville and mill work in the Ponemah era.

Fire Chief Tim Jencks, Taftville Fire Department.
