Synopsis

For ninety-six years, Bertha Ross MacLean’s determination to succeed affects four generations. In spite of her controlling schemes, her offspring lead good lives and find happiness, while Bertha broods over her discontent. There are some threatening moments, loving scenes and tender humor. Set near Chicago from 1902 through 1973, the book brings history to life. Readers may recognize some of their relatives and the human emotions that agitate families. The psychological effects of Bertha’s life provide a contrast between people who live for others and one who lives for herself.
