Emma, a young bride of a grocery store owner is swept up the Great Depression, as are all people in the 1930s. Most people know nothing of the stock market, and can't imagine how the crash could ever affect them. As more and more people become unemployed, the grocery store begins to fail. She isn't worried about herself; though still a teen, she knows she can take care of herself. Her biggest fear is having to clean people's houses, or care for their children to support her husband thoughout their lives. She knows he lacks the intelligence, imagination or skill to reinvent himself, and is determined to save their store. It requires taking out a loan, and banks aren't lending. Only a loan shark can provide the needed cash, and his terms are difficult to meet. Emma is forced to make a decision that no woman should ever have to make, if she wants to save her future. This heart warming story features the clever dialogue that Ron Dawes is known for. The ending will surprise you, and leave you wishing for more.
