Sometimes sad and yet hopeful, author Roland Roberts shares what it was like to live in the United States during the Great Depression. He illuminates an era rife with difficulties yet opportune for growth while demonstrating valuable lessons of resilience and hope. The events and experiences are sketched out through the eyes and travels of two brothers; Roland and, Sonny.
In Sonny, readers will meet a charismatic individual with a love for adventure, finding challenges in daily routine and one who enjoyed sharing it with everyone around him. Roberts, on the other hand was more adept in discovering how things worked and was extremely bright. Some occurrences hold personal value while others are culturally and historically relevant, providing readers a vivid glimpse of the events that helped pave the way to the present status of the United States.
Suffused with the zeitgeist of the times, “Sonny”: Tale of Two Brothers is a literary testament of human strength and fortitude amidst adversity.
