Narrated by Jan - who died 40 years ago

I laughed, I cried, I couldn’t sleep.  Dark shadows have been cast over this author and yet, she emerges with a smile on her face.  Thank God for her optimism.  This is an honest, well told account of one naïve young lady’s life down a rocky road.  M. Ries


Raw Emotion!  Determination!  Spiritual Strength!  The author’s compelling journey of loss, grief, and endurance as viewed through the eyes of her mother,  suggests that death does not separate the bonds of love!

Remarkable Storytelling!  JB
