Family. Home. Memories. Lillie Voith holds these values most dear.
When the cherished daughter, wife, and mother of nine is bedridden after a fall, her memories tug at threads woven through a century, as the fabric of her family frays around her.
A living portrait of the author’s ancestors, UP THE HILL TO HOME sketches four generations of the Miller/Beck/Voith clan from pre-Civil War to Depression era Washington DC.
