Excellence in Media Silver Angel Award

Virginia, the young daughter of a wealthy doctor s family, sees her life forever altered by the Great Depression. Forced to give up her own room so that relatives can move in, her resentment at those circumstances is altered as she helps her father, who spends his spare time giving medical attention to the people of Soo City. Soo City is a makeshift camp near the Soo Line tracks. But her father s goodwill clashes with powerful people who wish the camp destroyed. The violent strike of workers in the grain mill district brings tragedy to the strikers, and the father is severely wounded while helping the people of Soo City as the police are clearing out the camp. What happens next will astound you!

In this seamless and well-researched narrative, Tatlock provides a compelling look at the Depression through a child s eyes. At the same time, she accurately conveys the exuberance, naïveté, humor and optimism typical of young teens. --CBA Marketplace

From Library Journal:

Wrapped up in dreams of boys and marriage, 13-year-old Virginia Eide is brought back to a harsh reality when her uncle loses his job and his whole family is forced to move in with the Eides. Slightly resentful, Virginia doesn't fully understand why Jim can't just get another job. Visits to "Soo City," a housing camp for the homeless on the edge of their town, open Virginia's eyes. Along with her doctor father, Virginia helps care for the homeless. Virginia also begins to realize that God may not only have a place in her day-to-day life but has plans for her entire lifetime. Tatlock's first novel brings the Depression era to life, especially in its depiction of the of Soo City residents. Recommended, especially as an alternative to the romances and thrillers that usually populate Christian fiction.

Book Description Lighthouse Publishing. Paperback. Condition: New. 368 pages. A coming-of-age story chronicling the Great Depressions impact on a young girls spiritual maturity. this is a lovely story, unquestionably. - Booklist, starred reviewbrings the Depression era to life. - Library Journala well-crafted taleinfused with grace. - Skyway NewsThis remarkable coming-of-age story chronicles the Great Depressions impact on a young girls spiritual maturity. Set in Minnesota in 1932, the story unfolds as 13-year-old Virginia describes her familys life, irreparably changed by the Depression. Virginia becomes acutely aware of the Nations financial turmoil when her father, a doctor, asks her to accompany him to Soo City, the ramshackle shantytown outside the city limits. Virginia gains new perspectives on dignity, humility, compassion, and love when she meets the inhabitants, whove lost jobs and property. In this seamless and well-researched narrative, Tatlock provides a compelling look at the Depression through a childs eyes. At the same time, she accurately conveys the exuberance, naivety, humor, and optimism typical of young teens. Historical details are informative and entertaining. The books characters have unusual depth, and the authors riveting style makes reading this story a memorable experience for teenagers and adults alike. - Susan Dunman, CBA MarketplaceSome novels are well written. Some convey an important message. A Room of My Own shines both for its content and the loving, sensitive way it is conveyed. Writer Ann Tatlock vividly transports readers to the summer of 1932 and the comfortable world of 13-year-old Virginia Eide. Still largely untouched by the Great Depression, Virginias life revolves around her loving, prosperous family, her best friend, and their mutual dreams for someday marrying movie stars. Then Virginias world begins growing larger and less comfortable. Her laid-off uncle and his family must move into the Eides home. Virginias father, a physician, starts tending the homeless people whove built a village of shacks outside of town. As Virginia helps him bring aid to these desperately needy people, she begins to discover the joy of Jesus call to serve others. As her uncle is caught up by the violent opposition to his efforts to form a labor union, she learns that commitments often come at a sacrificial cost. This novel of faith in action will motivate and touch the hearts of believers, while displaying a narrative integrity that will also captivate those who do yet know Christ. -A. S. , Moody magazineImagine a time when your familys doctor came to your home, even in the middle of the night, and never check your wallet before treating a member of your family. This is Papa, a principled doctor in Hooverville serving the needs of others during the Depression years. I wrote this a few years ago, before the Obama-care controversy arose, says author Ann Tatlock. I still prefer the human touch, one in which Gods grace can even be called upon, to the government-dominated plans we face today. A Room of My Own, was awarded the Silver Angel Award by the late entertainer Steve Allens Hollywood-based Excellence in Media. Ann Tatlock is the award-winning author of eight novels. She lives with her family in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback.
