View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This true account of a WWII family in the growing metropolis of a suburban Los Angeles neighborhood, reflects the worries, progress, delight and tragedies of the time in an unremarkable yet memorable story. Isabelle Link not only devoted her life to her children, but also contributed much to the communities of Hollywood/Burbank where she lived for almost fifty years. This memoir, written by her daughter Peg, not only describes the life and times of growing up in the 40's and 50's, but also of basic life struggles between many mothers and daughters. Peg Aughenbaugh is a retired elementary school teacher who lives in Tucson, Arizona. Peg taught school for over 32 years mostly in Los Angeles and in Tucson. Never a mother herself, Peg's students became her focus and dedication for what she describes as the best years of her adult life. She is ever grateful to the many students who gave her the unconditional love that sustained her through the good and bad times we all encounter. Editor's Note "Mending Hearts captures the life experiences and spirit of Peg Aughenbaugh as she grew up in L.A. during the 40's, '50s and beyond. Family life, loves, losses, and resilience are detailed in a straightforward tone that draws a clear picture of Peg's and her mother's lives. I heartily recommend reading Mending Hearts to anyone who can relate to the ups and downs of life." - Rhody Cohon, New York Times Best Selling Author
