Looking For Normal – Brief Introduction

Looking For Normal

This personal journey will introduce you to the author’s mother & father, taking you back in time to when they were youngsters living in the Province of Saskatchewan, eventually making their way west to British Columbia.

It’s an interesting journey beginning in the 1930’s and the Great Depression, continuing on into the 1940’s and 1950’s. Tracing memories of her parents lives together and raising their children during that time.

The author recalls her childhood memories together with family, both good and difficult at times. It concludes with Karen reaching her early teens and personal experiences growing up in this part of Canada.

It’s a wonderful and at times a very real look at mental illness, that inflicted members of her family in the past and how it was looked upon and treated years ago.

Looking For Normal – Recommendations

Looking For Normal Author

I absolutely loved reading this book, as it brought back many similar memories of my upbringing during those years. Reflecting on similar surroundings, activities, nostalgic memories of old television programs, popular food items and treats we also enjoyed during our childhood years during this period.

In fact, my grandparents and parents also worked their way west many years ago from the Province of Saskatchewan. Many people did this, to escape the extremely hard times of living in the Prairies in the dirty 30’s and a few decades following.

Karen will take you on a very personal journey, recalling the good times and the bad times experienced over the years. If you are a Baby Boomer and/or enjoy reading a heartfelt non-fiction story of life, this book is for you!

I also really liked how the author included brief historical anecdotes on events, sites and attractions she mentions throughout the book.

An excellent addition to her book, offering a light history lesson for readers at the same time!
