Florence Quammie was just six years old in 1933, the year her family moved from The Bronx, one of New York City's thriving boroughs, to Sherman, a picturesque, rural farm town–and all-white community–tucked in the foothills of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut. The times were ripe   for prejudice and the situation held great potential for conflict. However, Florence Quammie's story proves the exception to expectation. Instead, it is a heartwarming tale of childhood spent among fine friends and wholesome fun from a bygone era of innocence and wonder.
