About this title


Born and raised in Newark, NJ, the Author allows us to share her personal memories of life in a Public Housing Project in the 1960s. After the death of her father, she began to seek refuge into her childhood memories as well as digging deeper into her ancestry as a way of removing herself from the pain of her loss, only to re-discover the blessings that her father left behind. During her journey, she is exposed to many heart breaking and joyful lessons, causing much confusion and pain along the way. Remembering how it was and knowing how it is, would allow her to create a balance between past and present that would ultimately find a life that has come full circle.

About the Author:

Maria Gonnella was born and raised in Newark, NJ. Her love of writing began as a young girl attending Abington Avenue and St. Francis Xavier Grammar Schools, and continued through her college years. Her imagination would take her to faraway places, without ever leaving her room in the Steven Crane Housing Projects, the only place she ever called “home.” After the death of her father, she developed a passion for genealogy research. Working together with her husband, Michael, they travelled to Italy and compiled and documented their ancestry lineage for their children and future generations, as a memorable tribute to their parents. In the early 1980s, she moved to the suburb of Nutley, NJ, where her and her husband raised their three children and currently reside.
