My New Book "The Promise Of A Better Life"




After two years of research, interviews, visiting Ellis Island and along with the help and cooperation of family members, "The Promise Of A better Life" has come to fruition. As many of my blogging friends know I haven't been posting too often lately. It seems as though I get focused on a project and everything else goes by the wayside! This includes housework, etc., etc. Pretty sure I got my priorities straight, though. 
My mom turns 90 in a few short weeks and I will gift her a book consisting of our family's history, folklore and memoirs. Stories I have heard since my early childhood put into writing! 
We have solved some mysteries, discovered new details and most importantly this journey has  brought us closer together as a family. Many blessings have been acknowledged along the way. 
You can preview the first 15 out of the 108 pages in the book. Don't forget to view it full screen by clicking on the square icon located on the bottom right. 
This has been a labor of love, and I must say that it makes me very proud to honor and recognize those who have gone before us!
Enjoy!


Pin It!

I didn't realize that I could see the book from the blog page! Nice work; your family should be very pleased.
My mother was born in 1923 too!

Oh, oh, oh....how incredible. My daughter and I are working on our ancestral past and have found some really fascinating things and when we get to that point I want to make it into a book too. How wonderful to be able to gift this to your mom on her birthday!! xo
