Editorial Reviews
Product Description

On his 81st birthday, without explanation, Karen Alaniz's father placed two weathered notebooks on her lap. Inside were more than 400 pages of letters he'd written to his parents during WWII. She began reading them, and the more she read, the more she discovered about the man she never knew and the secret role he played in WWII.

They began to meet for lunch every week, for her to ask him questions, and him to provide the answers. And with painful memories now at the forefront of his thoughts, her father began to suffer, making their meetings as much about healing as discovery. Thus began an unintended journey—one taken by a father and daughter who thought they knew each other—as they became newly bound in ways that transcended age and time.

Thank you. You're right. It IS exciting and at the same time, hard to believe.

Congratulations with your book. It sounds interesting. Right now I have much to deal with but would want to read it in the future. I guess by hard copy publication date.

Congrats!

My grandfather was a medic in WWII, but he never talked about it much. I can't imagine getting letters like that!
