Bittersweet Memories published July 2019
If you've had a happy childhood, you are blessed... an unhappy childhood, you write a book. Bittersweet Memories: The Life Story of an Immigrant Daughter came from the later. I was born in Bad Homburg, Germany and grew up near State College, Pennsylvania. Loneliness, divorce, and mental illness impacted my formative years. From the devastation of war to the challenge of life in a new country, I encountered both the best and worst of human nature --
bittersweet. Through it all, I came to realize that everyone struggles, but can choose their own path. I kept going, believing that I'd become stronger and wiser. It is my hope that in telling my story others may find encouragement and support to cope through their own difficult times.
