    1. Bernice Rocque on said:

      This is a story based on my family's history---and a personal journey in recent years to better know my mother. Like my first book, this is a story about the hope and determination of real people. This book is primarily set in the village of a famous fabric mill. In honor of my mother and her love of weaving, I constructed the nonfiction narrative in a woven blend of biography, history, memoir, and family portrait. I hope you enjoy The Ponemah Years!
