What began as a college writing assignment evolved into the novel Generations: A Greek Family Odyssey about three generations of women. Sandra is a Greek immigrant whose arranged marriage to a man nearly 20 years her senior brings her to America in 1935. Duty, fear of deportation and motherhood keep her locked in a marriage for five years until she finds the courage and determination to assert her independence. Setting off for New York City to begin a new life, she knows there is no turning back. Using her skills as a seamstress and with the assistance of other immigrants pursuing The American Dream, she assembles a new life with her child, and eventually finds a new husband of her own choosing.
Amidst the turbulence and uncertainty of the mid-1960s, her daughter Krystal is forced to find her own way when her husband abandons her, leaving her with a two-year-old daughter to raise alone. Juggling three jobs, she places her child in the care of a strict Catholic order of nuns that run a historic boarding school in another state.
Granddaughter Angela, the only Greek Orthodox student at the 120-year-old convent school, tries her best to fit in and make friends. She encounters a mysterious spirit in a dormitory attic.
