Abstract:

"During the long farewell of her mother's dying, Patricia Hampl revisits her Midwestern girlhood. Daughter of a debonair Czech father, whose floral work gave him entrée to St. Paul society, and a distrustful Irishwoman with an uncanny ability to tell a tale, Hampl remained, primarily and passionately, a daughter well into adulthood. She traces the arc of faithfulness and effort that comes with that role -- from the postwar years past the turbulent sixties. At the heart of The florist's daughter is the humble passion of people who struggled out of the Depression into a better chance, not only for themselves but for the common good."--Page 4 of cover.
