Comments from attendees:

“Your presentation was outstanding and deeply moving.”

“Your talk gave me a great sense of what it was like to live through WWII, both at home and at war.” 

“The letters you quoted were so compelling. I can’t wait to read the book.”

“Your talk helped me understand what my father went through.”  

Here’s what readers have to say about Waiting for Peace

“Since you spoke at our meeting I have read your book and all I can say is Wow! I couldn’t put the book down. Thank you for sharing your family with us.”

“I started your book a few nights ago and have to tell you I am so impressed with your research, organization and presentation. Your father and the others come alive, and you’ve given us a compelling narrative.”

“I just received your book and read it straight through! Wonderful work. It gives a great sense of what it was like to be in the war. You have a very impressive family. Your grandmother deserves her own book!”

 “The story unfolds in a page turning saga. The steady, understated progression of the narrative draws the reader in and fascinates in the telling of how one man’s story lies across the larger arc of history. This tale is told nearly entirely from family correspondence preserved in boxes that slept in the shadows for over 60 years, framed by the author’s extensive research into the historical record. This story demonstrates the ways that families and friends kept their love and hope alive.”
