Book DescriptionBeginning in 1932, when the author was seven years old, Icon of Spring traces a young girl's coming-of-age and a family's struggles to escape the bonds of poverty. From the pain and anguish of a neighbor's death in the coal mines to the thrills and mysteries of her eldest sister's wedding, Sonya Jason recalls details and emotions of her youth with honesty and warmth, emphasizing the close-knit ties of her entire community. Jason's memoir offers an intimate portrait of daily life during the darkest days of Herbert Hoover's America, and reveals the almost incandescent hope placed in Franklin D. Roosevelt by those who suffered the most during the Great Depression.
