THE INVISIBLE WALL: A LOVE STORY THAT BROKE BARRIERS
by Harry Bernstein
In this charming memoir, Harry Bernstein writes about growing up in a small mill town, in England, before World War I. His family is very poor and there's a whole brood of children. The father works in a shop as a tailor and gives very little of his wages to the mother. Most of the money he throws away on drink, every night, at the pubs and comes home roaring drunk.
Harry's mother dreams about the whole family going to America. Perhaps they will have a better life there.
Bernstein wrote this book when he was ninety-three years old. The writing is fluid and draws you in to all of the individual characters that made up this working-class neighborhood.
It's a great read.
