Writes Jamie Ross about her late mother Joan Ross, who was born Gertrude ("Gerti") Appenzeller in 1919 Vienna: "My mother wrote these stories as a way to keep her mind busy. Gertrude Appenzeller had many interests that kept her busy thorough her life, including sweet Punschkrapfenm, skiing, world travel, fashionable clothes, classical music, flowers, coffee éclairs, and reading. Her travels took her to over 30 countries, in which she ate everything and admired the faces of all she came in contact with, especially children. These stories were prompted by taking creative writing classes, literature classes, and philosophy classes at the local university in her 80s. Some of the stories are humorous; some are disheartening; all are quintessential Joan, with humor, sarcasm, sincerity, resistance, and survival."
