Lesson 1 begins with Education

It is one of the brightest ornaments which can gild his passage through this world, or which can make him appear to an advantage in it. It (education) places within his reach all those comforts and pleasures which, as man, he can possibly enjoy, and affords him an opportunity of dissipating the clouds of ignorance, and thereby contributing to the welfare of his fellow beings.

A third book for award winning author, Jean E. Perreault
During April of 1930 at the very onset of the Great Depression, 3248 men, women and children living in Bloomfield Connecticut were enumerated in the decennial United States Federal census. Now 88 years later, the lives of most of these individuals have ended, but each of their personal histories lives on through public records that reveal their origins, their military service, their occupations, their families, and their eventual demise. Vital statistics, prior and future census records, military records, immigration and naturalization records, town directories, newspaper articles and obituaries are but a few of the many sources which serve to document the lives led by these early 20th century Bloomfield residents

A family struck by tragedy is forced to rebuild their lives around a new mold.
Sarah Crawford’s family vacationed every summer with her beloved Gram and Gramps. Every day was a fun adventure, but Sarah’s favorite was their special night of star catching, with Gramps and her dad.
On the last night of vacation, Sarah overhears her grandparents saying how much they look forward to selling their house and traveling unencumbered after Gram retires.
When an accident on their way to the airport kills Sarah’s parents and brother, Marian and Ed cope with grief and the unanticipated responsibility of raising Sarah.
