    ITEM#: 2504187

    Catherine Gildiner has been in private practice in clinical psychology for nearly twenty years. She writes a monthly advice column forChatelaine, a popular Canadian magazine, and contributes regularly to countless other Canadian newspapers and magazines. She lives in Toronto with her husband and three sons.

    Welcome to the childhood of Catherine McClure Gildiner. It is the mid-1950s in Lewiston, New York, a sleepy town near Niagara Falls. Divorce is unheard of, mothers wear high heels to the beauty salon, and television has only just arrived.

    At the tender age of four, Cathy accompanies Roy, the deliveryman at her father's pharmacy, on his routes. She shares some of their memorable deliveries-sleeping pills to Marilyn Monroe (in town filming Niagara), sedatives to Mad Bear, a violent Tuscarora chief, and fungus cream to Warty, the gentle operator of the town dump. As she reaches her teenage years, Cathy's irrepressible spirit spurs her from dangerous sled rides that take her "too close to the Falls" to tipsy dances with the town priest.

    • Too Close To The Falls

      This story took me back to when I was a little girl growing up in Cleveland, Ohio. The main character, Cathy is just five years younger than me. However, she was involved with the same TV shows, movies and activities that I was at her age. Because of this, I thoroughly enjoyed the story she told. What an imagination and memory Cathy has. I recommend this book to everyone but especially to women ages 60-65.
