Frightened and spiteful,MoreThis poignant story is based on the real-life experiences of Anna who, in 1905, was forced to leave her childhood home in Roccamorice, Italy, after her husband who had traveled to America to earn money refused to return home. Frightened and spiteful, Anna joined him only to find that their home was nothing more than an old chicken coop located alongside a dirty railroad track in Northeast Minneapolis.Over the years Anna gave birth to seven children.

Sadly, three died as infants and one died as a toddler. In 1930 her husband committed suicide, practically in front of her. Her three surviving children needed her unending care and support. She didn’t have any skills, she didn’t have any money and she wasn’t about to do anything illegal. She and her children scraped by through the depression, and they struggled through World War II. One by one Anna’s children moved to California.At eighty-three years of age Anna was certain she was dying.

She wanted to see her children again, but the only way she could get to California was to sit on her pillow in a truck that was speeding almost nonstop across the United States.
