About the Book
Mother's Story is a true account of a remarkable woman's journey through life. This woman is my mother, born Annunziata Ludovico, in Gioia del Colle, Italy, but known by most people as Nancy Smith from Portsville, Delaware.
Her story is full of adversity, from her birth in 1917 to her life as an immigrant in New York, and then as a wife and mother in Delaware. Her faith, strength, and compassion helped her to find peace and hope in life, even after the tragic event in 1958.
I wrote this book for my grandchildren because I want them to know their beautiful, wise great-grandmother.
