Additional Information

It's not always the earth-shattering events that are most significant in our hectic lives. More often, it's the small things, many long forgotten, that touch and shape us most deeply. Our memories of these events might bring smiles, or anger, or even a desire to forget. But every one of them helps to make us who we are today-and in some ways, who we will become tomorrow. Join Eric Mondschein at the unhurried pace of a cup of coffee for a surprising and powerful journey in which laughter inevitably mingles with tears, sorrow turns to joy, and loss almost becomes bearable.

Life at 12 College Road is a fun, nostalgic read (and I mean nostalgic in the best sense). Eric Mondschein takes us on a trip down that road through the eyes of a now adult child reflecting on his family. It's set in a time of my generation and each page brings back a memory and a moment. From the mad dash from the black and white TV to the kitchen during a commercial because all TV was pretty much a one time event and you didn't want to miss a second to those tiny remembrances we have of our brother or sister which we wouldn't trade for anything. He walks us through his early days, all the while drawing us back to ours.

The stories are glimpses into the life and love within a family. He may not agree but they're not "special", they are familiar, so familiar at least in my case that I had to remind myself of whose stories these were. So many tales of simple adventures mirrored my own. The lessons learned about digging out igloos, the perils of burning leaves and what a... Read more
Eric invites us to "journey with him down memory land where laughter mingles with tears, sorrow turns to joy and loss almost becomes bearable." My journey through Life at 12 College Road was exactly that and more. Give yourself the gift to savor this or two vignettes at time.

The stories, so eloquently voiced, beckoned for me to ponder, to laugh out loud, to shake my head in bewilderment and share snippets with my companions. Eric and his brother's shenanigans shocked as well as delighted me. But most of all, it left me with a desire to frolic a bit more with his mother. Eric gives a modest glimpse of a remarkable woman he was blessed to call Mom.
Life at 12 College Road is a beautifully written collection of short vignettes from Eric's formative years, each will leave a smile on your face and are a poignant reminder to cherish our precious moments with family and friends during our fast-fleeting lives. Eric beautifully transitions between the view of events through the eyes of a child, through the eyes of an adult, and through the eyes of loved ones who have passed on - weaving it all seamlessly together to make you realize that heartfelt love lasts forever. I highly recommend this superb book to all.
