The Sorting Room

A girl coming of age during America’s Great Depression, Eunice Ritter was born to uncaring alcoholic parents and destined for a life of low-wage toil—a difficult, lonely existence of scant choices. This epic novel—which spans decades—shows how hard work and the memory of a single friendship gave the indomitable Eunice the perseverance to pursue redemption and forgiveness for the grievous mistakes she made early in her life.
