Nancy R. Hinchliff is an educator who taught in the Chicago public school system for thirty-five years and at the School of Education at the University of Illinois in Chicago. She is a former innkeeper who owned a bed and breakfast in Old Louisville, Kentucky before moving to Vermont to be near family and write full time. She has published her new book “Roxie and Alfred: A Story of Courage, Resilience, and Survival”: a deeply personal reflection on two incredible people who made a profound impact on her life.

The lives of Roxie and Alfred are about to change forever. Their relationship was already rocky from past transgressions. But now, moving from their safe but meager life on a farm in North Carolina to the thriving, gritty northern metropolis of Detroit, Michigan, at the height of Prohibition, they will face the criminal underbelly of the city, the hopelessness of the Great Depression of 1929, and the stress and loss of World War II. Their ability to successfully thrive while coping with adversity is the legacy they leave their extended family, who pick up where Roxie and Alfred leave off and take on life in the big city one day at a time.

Published by Page Publishing, Nancy R. Hinchliff’s engrossing book is an entertaining and nostalgic memoir of her remarkable grandparents and their quintessentially American experience.
