Summary
Peggy Rowe's story of growing up as the daughter of Thelma Knobel is filled with warmth and humor. But there's a Thelma in everyone's life. She's the person taking charge, the one who knows instinctively how things should be. Growing up, Peggy saw her mother as a benevolent, loving dictator. When major league baseball came to town in the early 1950s and turned sophisticated Thelma into a crazed Baltimore Orioles groupie, nobody was more surprised and embarrassed than Peggy. Life became a series of compromises-- and they discovered that sometimes, we're more alike than we know
