The Book


From nothing…to a life full of adventure that spans over 80 years.

At age four, Jonn and his two brothers, one younger and one older, were left by their Jamaican parents in the care of an abusive guardian on the island of Jamaica.

They were left to figure out the mysteries of life alone.   Jonn was awkward, insecure, with no self-confidence when he embarks on a journey that leads him through Canada, across the United States and beyond.

Through the.....


Helen Johnston Majercik was a Smith College graduate, Class of 1937, who led a long life. After graduating from Smith, Helen chauffeured her Aunt Anna on a cross-country auto trip with equally fun-loving relatives. Helen’s life was one that was lively and full of incident. She capped it in an unusual way: she enjoyed her life so much that she decided, in her last years, to write a book about it.

In this self-titled memoir, Helen tells of becoming an x-ray technician in the early days of that specialty and of course she introduces her husband and other family members, such as her sisters, one whose nickname was Louse. Among her book’s highlights, though, are things like the description of her ‘career’ as a bridesmaid: she walked down the aisle no fewer than five times as an attendant, despairing at the end of ever being the bride. Helen did marry at age 42 and had one daughter at age 44.

In a chapter to themselves are stories and anecdotes contributed to her book by more than a dozen of Helen’s friends who assisted her in many ways after her daughter died. The combined stories give the reader the secrets to a long and happy life.
