In 1935, a young mother wrote a letter to a magazine, asking for help. At a time when a woman’s place was in the home, she bravely admitted that she was lonely and frustrated. The letter struck a chord with women country-wide and so a secret magazine was born: The Co-operative Correspondence Club, or CCC. With amazing and stunning honesty, the members wrote about every aspect of their lives: the pain and elation of childbirth, the challenges of marriage, broken hearts and faded dreams. In a day and age without Internet chat room or forums, they connected, supported each other and experienced life time friendships. This is their story….and during the days of COVID, this may be the life preserver need, because the problems of home-making, raising children and making a happy family don’t change.
