Roxie and Alfred: A Story of Courage, Resilience, and Survival

Roxie
Alfred
tells the story of one courageous American family who leave behind their safe but meager life in North Carolina to seek fame and fortune in the thriving, gritty northern metropolis of Detroit at the height of prohibition, when organized crime and violence was a way of life. Having escaped serious threats from the Purple Gang, they are later met with the Great Depression of 1929, and World War Two in 1939. 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 city one day at a time. The book is structured thematically around the phenomenon of survival.
