About the Book
Take a journey with a little German girl. Read about her meager beginnings as the daughter of refugees from Poland, all-girl camps, bombings, Russian and American soldiers, and a new life in the United States. It's not a “rags to riches” story, but rather one of perseverance. She spoke little English when she arrived in America after traveling alone and on a military ship. She faced the hardship of an alcoholic husband, no family assistance, but blessed with friendships and persistence. This book was written to record her history as a legacy for her children and their children. It is a gathering of photos from her father, her children, and her own records placed into one book to be shared by all.

I recently developed a motto, "Your history is your legacy." I worry about this digital world as photo albums lie abandoned and memories become lost through the generations. My passion has become to convince you to take the time to talk to family and put their stories and photos in a unique book that will last a very long time letting great-great grandchildren truly know their stories. If not, those photos are trashed and doors are closed. Just take this amazing journey to preserve what is yours. I am here to help.
