Author C.R. MacBean’s New Audiobook ‘Pete: Forming the Foundation’ is a Captivating Tale of the Many Difficulties of a Family in Michigan During the Great Depression

C.R. MacBean, a retired army officer and veteran of the Vietnam War, has completed his new audiobook “Pete: Forming the Foundation”: a heartfelt, fascinating story about Marie, a pregnant young woman living during the Great Depression who is determined to raise her child on her own and the family who helps her after being betrayed by her husband.
In his foreword, author C.R. MacBean writes, “During a winter blizzard in 1931, the Montgomery’s prepared for the birth of a new family member in the upstairs bedroom of a Michigan farmhouse. Snow had closed the county roads. Medical help was not available should an emergency arise. And emergency did arise; the life of the infant was in jeopardy.”
Published by Audiobook Network, author C.R. MacBean’s new audiobook is a poignant book about one family’s determination to take care of an infant named Pete. MacBean’s powerful story delves into divorce, prejudice, and anti-Semitism, among other pressing issues from the Great Depression. The Great Depression was a time in American history in which resources were scarce and government assistance was not given to those who needed it to get through dark days.
The family provides Pete with a solid foundation to carry him through all parts of life, both the good and the bad. This powerful story brings listeners into the lives of Americans during the Great Depression.
