We’re In This Together

by Ellen Brennan Williams

Some memories last forever… Forty memories, like forty grains of sand on an endless stretch of beach, seem insignificant by comparison, until a glint of brilliant sunshine or a hint of human inspiration ­illuminates them and sets them free. Ellen Brennan Williams, inspired by profound tales of courage and sacrifice by the men, women, and children in her own hometown, has done just that. Determined to share with others and preserve these ­important pieces of history, she dove head-first into the profound memories of World War II veterans, loved ones left behind, war brides, youth on the homefront, and civilians struggling in Allied and Axis nations abroad. This book is about struggles and conflicts, sacrifice and courage, determination and victory — a wonderful read that will remind you that the human spirit cannot be broken.
