She came of age in 1917, moved from a northern farm to a southern city, and married a bigger-than-life man. What expectations she had to balance! She carried society’s expectations—to adapt, to accept, to fill an assigned role; the ones she had for her own life; and the ones she had for her offspring. Family photos and stories provide only clues about the weight of this balancing act, and the costs of the process.
