About L. D. Goldberg



I would like to express my gratitude to the many people who saw me through this book; to all those who provided support, talked things over, read, wrote, offered comments, allowed me to quote their remarks and assisted in the editing, proofreading and design. Special thanks to my book designer Maureen Cutajar at go
Above all I want to thank Jeff Stephens and the rest of my family, who supported and encouraged me in spite of all the time it took me away from them. It was a long and difficult journey for them.
I would like to thank Jaye Jones for suggesting the obvious, Her Mother, Candy Stephens an English teacher, to review and suggest basic memoirs styles. David Bleiler, author in his own rights, a friend of 46 years. His encouragement and suggestions helping me in the process of editing. Verlin Miller, illustrator, artist and a brotherly friend. His artwork has covered my home, and now my book. My photographer and friend, Libe Capaccio who has helped me arranged Pat and Tom’s Welsh photography in this book. And of course Pat Welsh whose diary and memoirs was a love story…
If it weren’t for Tom Welsh's belief in me, this book would have never been possible!


Review by: Francesca on June 20, 2015 :
There's nothing like a good book. And this is it! Read it twice and thoroughly enjoyed it. She describes perfectly what it was like growing up in San Francisco. I know of some of those haunt that she wrote about back during the second world war. I read my parents letters, but her letters to her first husband, John were so beautiful, personal and sad. Sad in a way that she was able to grow, and go on. Her poems are so touching. I also enjoyed her travels to Africa. What a life! Her grandmother was such a rough jewel but I think all grandmothers are rough Jewels. Towards the end of the book 2 things stuck with me… the horrific photos of Africa, and the message she had throughout her life that if you persist your dreams will be fulfilled. And towards the very end. I like the idea of the genealogy of her family. Definitely a lot of work went into this book and I like the idea that a small percentage goes to charity in Pat Welsh's name. Now that's given back, even after death. It's just a good book. Period! And I love the book cover !!!
