Front Cover
AuthorHouse, 2010 - Biography & Autobiography - 348 pages
0 Reviews
The author's father kept a WWII journal. It tells an amazing story of his travels, first train ride, first flight, first sight of the desert, the mountains, beautiful Hawaii, and traveling on a huge ship to Hawaii. He went overseas homesick for his girlfriend (the author's mother) - his own mom died while he was in the service. The book is in two parts, one during the war and the second part, afterwards. The island where they were both raised is mentioned all through the book, and their faith and love endured many hardships. Says the author, "My dad was a strong man and God brought him home."
