about

The Great Depression and WWII were difficult and challenging years for so many. Mix that
drama with the trauma of a horribly dysfunctional family, and you had the makings of utter disaster and failure. War Torn: Mending of a Family, however, tells the saga of one special family through the eyes and words of a disenfranchised member who struggled her entire youth to maintain her identity and relationship with her unforsaken family of siblings and survive the violent onslaught of an angry, contemptable and denying father.

The story follows the footsteps and years of our main character while she challengingly deals with issues of exclusion and shame throughout her insecure, young life yet fights to retain her place and independence within the family scope and, ultimately, bring all her siblings back together where they belonged. The story is factual and historical by content and nature as it reviews lifestyles and challenges while living through the depression and war years and learning survival skills as a female welder of Rosie-the-Riveter (and Wendy-the-Welder) fame.

The story, therefore, is a biographical travelogue as it describes and discusses a variety of conflicts and issues that arose in our young heroine’s life. There are enough tears to go around, to-be-sure. Yet, there is also a plethora of historical fact and curious and humorous experiences as well as inspirational commentary and dialogue.
