This is Merry Adler’s first published book, Grandmothers Who Inspired Us Across The World. She dedicated this unique collection of heartfelt memoirs to her own maternal grandmother who inspired her to create a very special anthology. Thirty loving grandchildren were interviewed by Merry, and it is their unique perspective and genuine reflections of their grandmothers that will indeed inspire countless readers. One third of the grandmothers in this compendium were born outside the United States. Such countries are: China, Colombia, France, Italy, Mexico, Russia, Sweden, Syria, the United Kingdom and Vietnam. As Merry offers the readers, "A good loving grandmother is no different whether she lives in Mississippi or Morocco. The languages of these grandmothers, their culture and their religions may vary but their love is the same." Merry was born in Hartford, Connecticut and raised in West Hartford. Boston became her second home where she worked in four Harvard-affiliated hospitals as an Administrative Assistant. Her last destination took her to Washington, DC where she graduated with both her BA and MA degrees in Education and Human Development from The George Washington University. She held three directorship positions in major hospitals in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area.
