The Granddaughter Necklace

Sharon Wyeth

A mother tells her daughter the history of their family and the importance of a glittering necklace. The necklace is precious because it has been handed down from mother to daughter, along with the stories of their journey from Ireland to America. The tales of separation and hardship lead to the comfortable middle-class life of the narrator. From mothers to daughters, the necklace “says you’re one of us…and forever loved.” Detailed acrylic paintings present scenes of home life and gorgeous landscapes of places that were “home.” A touching and thoughtful view of family history. Ages 5-8
