Michael John Laekas is the author of five published books that pay tribute to his parents, Mary and John Laekas. In 2009, he embarked on a project to provide a legacy for future generations. The result is a set of books that will appeal to fans of stories about love, war, and family. First came the trilogy Mary and John, The Early Years that describes the rough and tumble world of his parents, from their childhood to young adults. Then he created a remarkable photo album with narrative (Reliving Their Journey) that followed his emotional 47-day visit to places in Canada, Great Britain, and Europe that marked significant events in his parents’ young lives. His latest book is a compelling story of his father’s years as a Canadian soldier during the Second World War in A Soldier’s Journey 1940-1945.
