Description

An uplifting tale of love, kinship, and gifts, passed down through generations.

There are moments in each person's life that we take great care to remember: the pride of a young girl standing up for herself for the first time, the heartbreak of leaving one's country and family for a new beginning, the thrill of getting ready for the piano recital of a lifetime.

In Sharon Dennis Wyeth's family these moments were marked with the passing on of The Granddaughter Necklace: not a fancy piece of jewelry, but a precious one, worn smooth by the touch of mothers and grandmothers, each with her own story to tell.

With a historical sweep that reaches back to Ireland and to Africa, and an intimacy that resides in every family's treasured stories, Wyeth tells the tale of one family's journey from the old world to the new, from the past to the present, and from mother to daughter.

Here's a book that we feel will be passed on from generation to generation too, read in laps and in groups, opening conversations about our own necklaces of memory.
