McMahon speaks from the heart. She has inherited many of the values that built Detroit- empathy for workers, dedication to middle-class, tolerance of religion and commitment to democracy. In the preface of her book she proclaims, "I live in Houston, but Detroit lives in me." She is truly a Motor City girl and, like many other Detroit native sons and daughters, refuses to stop believing in her beloved hometown. The Motor City and Me: Our Story is an in-depth portrait of a spirited American metropolis throughout its prosperous era and during its most trying time. Throughout her story McMahon highlights the rich history of Detroit and how the Motor City has left a lasting impact on both her and her family.
