A life bookended by pandemics, explores growing up in the tristate area during the Great Depression and World War II. A lot changes over a century of life; from indoor plumbing to social media.

After working multiple jobs during a recession, Bernice and her high school sweetheart, Henry, are finally able to get married. The honeymoon is disrupted when word from home notified the couple that Henry had received his draft notice.

The war changes life on Staten Island with anti-aircraft units next door and her father, who is also drafted to the Coast Guard, escorting ships in New York Harbor.

Post-war Bernice and her family face personal battles; from parenting to cancer. Despite personal trials and tribulations Bernice's zest for life, nature, and her sense of humor makes for a feel-good adventure.
