Come, take this exciting, romantic ride through a bygone era. Miss Uniontown 1951 is an endearing, coming of age memoir of a decade that Plus Hall characterizes (not without reason), as "hers." Within these pages, she captures the innocence, the charm and the promise of a young woman on the edge of her adulthood. In her sweet, bouncy style, Plus shares her journey from beauty queen, to nursing school, to a romance with Pop Star Rudi Magueri of The Crew-Cuts, when her dreams were shattered by a phone call. Her story is chronicled through newspaper clippings, original love letters and photos that perfectly evoke the style and attitude of the decade. How she coped with life's hurdles is retold here through a keen memory for detail, from an amazing woman. Don't miss this treasure of a time capsule that will have you rifling through the attic for your own cherished memorabilia.
