Jilly was a war baby. Not from the battlefields of World War II Europe and its now shabby cities. She lived in Nova Scotia, on Canada's Atlantic coast, in a small town three thousand miles away from t... he European front. Yet the war seemed to find her. Every Nova Scotian town is near the ocean, and yet Bridgewater was considered inland, in a way as insulated as eleven-year-old Jilly. The big house in Bridgewater was on a main highway, full of old antiques and plenty of noise, with spoiled uncles running off to Halifax in new cars earned by way of those old-fashioned antiques to where the girls were the prettiest in the province. Yet the war took them away from Bridgewater, and from Jilly, not to a war-torn front, but the far reach of their own country. Except for Skip. Best friend. Tall, handsome, athletic. Shipped overseas to the swamps, jungles, and heat of Burma. And then there is the improbable and contrary sport of baseball. For Skip, an old man of thirty, bent over by disease, torture, and humiliation, all would vanish with a crack of a bat on an extraordinary field far away. Nostalgic and winsome, Treat Us Generously has woven the threads of self-assured young men, a young girl on the inharmonious side of her teens, and baseball, with a war fought not only thousands of miles away, but also at home. I had the good fortune to read June Everett's Treat Us Generously book. I not only endorse it but also highly recommend it to those who love family and sports. A wonderful read and a most fitting historic ending: 'The Giants Win the Pennant, The Giants Win the Pennant!' --Arnie D. Fielkow, Former Executive Vice President, New Orleans Saints Everett has written a beautiful representation of what life was like during and following WWII for a Jewish family living in Nova Scotia. It is a poignant story of the experiences of a family who are struggling with changes brought about by the war. The portrayal of the warrior soldier who has returned to a family who is not quite sure how to handle his pain and trauma caused by the war but is able to find a common bond through the sharing of their love of baseball is powerful and applicable to the return home of warriors from current wars. --Carolyn C. White, Dean of Counseling, University of Holy Cross June Everett has lived in New Orleans, Louisiana, for a number of years. She teaches sociology on the faculty of University of Holy Cross in New Orleans, and has previously served in many roles as an educator, including elementary school teacher, librarian, and principal. Active in several community organizations, she has participated on many of their boards. She is a native of Nova Scotia, Canada, which she still considers one of her favorite places.
