Shattered Dreams

by Irene Spencer
Monday, January 28, 2008

When we usually see these families, they are all smiling and seem happy but this book by Irene Spencer tells the true story of poverty, loneliness, tiredness and a very sad way of life. She was married for 28 years, shared with 9 other wives and had 13 children of her own. She lived in squalor with no electricity, indoor plumbing or proper health care. Very sad book but also revealing.

Even though the book was written in the early 1940's, it has a timeless feel.

A young man from Chicago gives up his privileged life, his friends and his fiancee to travel the world to seek knowledge and answers to life's meaning.

Maugham's story, with its many diverse characters, is set against the backgrounds of Paris, the Riviera and the East and is considered to be one of his best.
