Brooklyn Raised Livin' Upstate
From city girl to country girl, each story of this move has it's own twists and turns. In this book Kathleen shares her experiences of growing up in Brooklyn, learning how to do everything the "city" way, and living with a large extended Italian and Irish family. As the story continues she ends up meeting her future husband, and he is from rural upstate New York!
After the wedding she moves to Upstate New York -- Farm Country! The story explores the differences between growing up in the city and then raising your family in the country. A series of brief easy to digest chapters let you experience a little bit of her life.
This is Kathleen's second memoir, focusing on the contrasts of life in the city and the country. In her first memoir "My Story" she explores and shares her spiritual journey through some difficult experiences. The author invites you to learn a little about her life, and perhaps at the same time learn a little more about yourself.
