Heartache - One Family's Struggle During World War II (Paperback): Nellie E. Robertson Heartache - One Family's Struggle During World War II (Paperback)
Nellie E. Robertson
R297 Discovery Miles 2 970 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

On an idyllic and quiet December morning, the Farrington family was thrown into chaos by the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Their lives would never be the same. The Farringtons, wrapped in the fabric of World War II from its very beginning, saw the conflict through the eyes of a sailor in the Pacific war, a son flying bomber missions over Europe and a young man slogging his way through five major battles in Europe from Omaha Beach to Berlin. The anguish of the home folks never ceased for the Farringtons with constant worry about the boys they had in the American forces. The rigors of dealing with rationing and worry paled in comparison to the violence their family members endured. A generation would be defined by the war. Young boys went to war and, if they came back, returned as men. Experiences in training camps, new cities they passed through, and on the field of battle changed them from the naive youngsters they had been to the battle veterans they had become. Buckets of tears were shed, lives lost, relationships begun and ended, survival under the worst circumstances imaginable, and through it all the Farringtons coped with fortitude.

Beyond Wellington (Hardcover): Nellie E. Robertson Beyond Wellington (Hardcover)
Nellie E. Robertson
R545 Discovery Miles 5 450 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

One fateful night in 1910, in Washington's snowy Cascade Mountains, Laurie Davis's life takes an unexpected turn. As one of only eight passengers to survive the horrible Wellington railroad disaster that kills ninety-six people, she struggles to understand why her life is spared. But the wisdom and courage she gains from the tragedy helps her cope with the hurdles she encounters in the ten years following the crash.

Laurie's work as an editor's assistant at the "Everett Daily Herald" puts her in a position to vent her feelings about women's suffrage and prohibition. The birth of her son, her friend's encounter with spousal abuse, labor unrest and violence, World War I, influenza, and the usual bumps of everyday life tax the wisdom and courage she earned with her survival from the crash.

But through misfortune and loss, Laurie emerges victorious, a strong, dedicated woman whose newspaper career grows from an assistant position to an editor and publisher in her own right. "Beyond Wellington" is the story of one woman's valor, strength, and determination in her triumph over adversity.
