Book Title: A Matter of Survival - The Story of Frances
Book Synopsis: When do life 's troubles become too much to handle? For Frances, it started when her father abandoned her at age six and had to spend the next ten years in an orphanage with stern nuns who offered little in the way of comfort or consolation. And that was just the beginning of the obstacles she faced in life, after being born in 1917 to an Italian immigrant couple who seemed to resent her very existence. But as documented by her daughter in the amazing true story, Frances never showed a hint of bitterness. Instead, she overcame every struggle armed with sweetness and positivity, and her story is sure to inspire those facing hardships in their own lives.
