About the Book

Caddie had to survive.

Left without money, and with two young children to fend for, Caddie set out to make a new life by working at the only job she could find - behind the bar of a hotel.

this is the true story of a desperate struggle against the almost overwhelming hardships of the Great Depression, against bad rooming-houses, bed bugs and illness, against exploitation and the lawless corruption of her working environment.

But the story of Caddie is more than a story of survival. It is the story of a mother's love for her children and of her willingness to sacrifice everything for them. It is a story of courage shown by a woman who knew loneliness, hunger and despair but refused to be self-pitying or invite the pity of others. It is a story of heart-warming and inspiring triumph.
