Till We Meet Again, (A Love Story set in WW2)

After seven years of procrastination and three years of finally getting down to work, my love story is now in circulation. It made its first appearance on April 18th, at the monthly breakfast meeting of WEN.

On April 25th, it appeared again at the Mississauga Central Library’s Spring Literary Festival.

On May 2nd, it was presented at my Book Launch which was well attended by WEN members. (Many thanks)

On May 16th it will appear again at the monthly breakfast meeting of WEN.

It is a simple story of two lovers who fight to hold on to each other even though the spectre of death in war is constantly with them. The echo of an old man’s words follow them and gives them the strength to endure:

“You are frightened that there is no escape from the evils that surround you and you will lose your love in the darkness and death that is your life. But I say to you that when two souls bond in their love to face this world together, even onto the next, they cannot be separated. They will be given a place to stand and abide in love for a day, a year and for all eternity.”
