I was raised on a farm in South Central Missouri. I graduated from college and was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the United States Army. I spent 20 years on active duty as a Field Artillery Officer. I held a number of command and staff jobs with overseas assignments in Turkey and Germany. I retired as a Major and currently work for the Army as a civilian. I currently live in Kansas City, Kansas. I enjoy traveling with my family and we have been on several cruises. Between my military service and these cruises I have seen a great deal of the world.
This romance has letters written between the author's Mother and Father during their courtship in 1951 and 1952. The relationship between the author's Mother and Father and the people around them is the main theme and early 1950s life is explained. This should appeal to older readers, readers in rural areas, readers in Missouri (especially Kansas City) and readers interested in early 1950s life.
