The Sugar House by Jean Scheffler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
For anyone who has ever wondered what life was life for their parents or grandparents, this wonderful story is filled with history of a time very different from our lives today. Author Jean Scheffler shares what life was like in the early 1900 through the story of Joe, a boy who gets caught up in life's circumstances and winds up as an illegal rum runner in Detroit during prohibition. Joe tries hard to help take care of his family in the only way he knows how. Well researched, this book blends historical facts with a compelling personal story.
