Tragedy on the Twenty
Can you imagine raising four children under four during the depression
—without a husband?

The Toronto Maple Leafs are in the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the second year in a row. Will they defeat the New York Rangers to win the coveted cup two years in a row? Famous bank robbers Bonnie and Clyde have another shoot-out with police. Will they get caught this time? German Chancellor Adolph Hitler is making changes in Germany that has the rest of the world taking notice.

It’s April 1933 and while others are looking forward to the upcoming Easter long weekend, twenty-five-year old Janetta Fanson is organizing a funeral. Her life is suddenly spiraling downhill; this is not the life that she and her husband had planned together. With three children under four—and a fourth on the way—Janetta must raise her children with no job or driver’s license during the worst year of the depression. Travel with Janetta on her journey of self-discovery, through inquests and decisions, and learn how she reclaims her life and starts to live again.
