The Life of a Freedom Fighter

Front Cover
Helen Marie Fias has written many short stories, Bible studies, and novels, based on her experiences and teachings. She was raised on a dairy farm in Wisconsin, but spent most of her adult life in the beautiful Western side of Washington State. Helen's interests, besides being a wife and mother, have been oil painting, ceramic making, teaching the Bible and writing. Two of her novels based on her young life on a dairy farm, Country Splendor and Country Splendor Embraced, have been published and well received. In 1960 she was divorced from her first husband and raising three small children with the help of her parents when, by chance, she met a recently widowed young Hungarian man. They found that even though their lives were so different from each other's, still the attraction between them was strong. Tibor Fias had lost his wife in a house fire, and his three babies had died in their infancy. He insisted on marrying Helen shortly after they met, and adopting her daughter and two sons. Eventually another son and daughter were born to them, rounding out their family. The Life of a Freedom Fighter is her latest endeavor, relating the exciting experiences of her husband's life in Hungary that ended with his bringing his young bride with him to the United States, after the Hungarian Revolution in 1956 was lost. He lived a fascinating life, full of intrigue, danger, romance and wars. His story captivates his audiences, with them encouraging him to put it into print.
