by Mary Palermo This is a narrative journal in which Mary Palermos many life experiences are told in detail, including the death of her mother at the hands of Nazi soldiers during World War II in Italy, and the starvation threatening her younger brother and sister. She also recounts her teen years, her fathers eventual remarriage, and her familys emigration to America, where Mary worked in the New York garment industry for a long time. She also communicates vivid images of life enriched by spiritual and idealistic values, and many loved ones in her life, including her husband, children, grandchildren, and much more. ABOUT THE AUTHOR You readers deserve to know about the author, who was born in Italy on the year previous to the coming of World War II. She was obviously too young to remember much of the events of the war. Even through war, she went through many crises during the pathway of her life, which were the result of the war and its destruction. Mary remained strong with the love she gained with many of her loved ones, most specifically with the faithful gifts she received from the most loving God.
