Summary, etc.:
Mary Murray Bosrock's heartfelt stories of growing up a baby boomer in Sandusky, Ohio will make you wish you could blink your eyes and join the Murray family at the dinner table of 124 East Madison Street. This Catholic tale recalls an era where innocence reigned and nuns ruled. The cast includes a hard-of-hearing mother, fond-of-shouting father, six rowdy brothers, a drama queen sister, unforgettable aunts and uncles, eccentric neighbors, and utterly naive classmates, all living in perpetual fear of eternal damnation. Mortal Sin on My Soul is a rollicking confession that will stay with you through this life and the next. -- Amazon website.
