"A wonderful reminder that economic hardship can bring suffering
but can also foster compassion and community." -The Boston Globe

In hard economic times like these, readers will find bestselling
author Ted Gup's unique book uplifting as well as captivating. Inside a
suitcase kept in his mother's attic, Gup discovered letters written to
his grandfather in response to an ad placed in a Canton, Ohio,
newspaper in 1933 that offered cash to seventy-five families facing a
devastating Christmas. The author travels coast to coast to unveil the
lives behind the letters, describing a range of hardships and
recreating in his research the hopes and suffering of Depression-era
Americans, even as he uncovers the secret life led by the grandfather
he thought he knew.
