The award-winning memoir of one woman's struggles and triumphs to reclaim an identity she had lost

This inspirational story of one girl's search for a home is an engaging first-person narrative of life during the Great Depression and World War II. Readers and critics alike offer lavish praise for Norling's graceful prose and the redemptive tale she shares.

"Patty's Journey is brave and candid, a shattering and finally triumphant story told with trustful simplicity. I surrendered to its straightforward chronicling of a dickensian family breakup in Depression-era Minnesota and the ensuing orphan odyssey of Patty". Faith Sullivan, author of The Cape Ann

"This amazing personal history is a vivid story of a stout-hearted little kid facing a scary chapter in American history....Patty's Journey could make the most hard-hearted reader into a change agent for kids". Carol Bly, author of The Tomcat's Wife and Other Stories
