Read full description of the books Love, Bill: Finding My Father through Letters from World War II:“The 'Greatest Generation' meets 'Love Letters' meets 'Yentl.'”
Long before she became a museum curator, Jan Krulick-Belin curated memories… photographs and mementos of her father, who died when she was just six. Her mother rarely spoke about him again, until a year before her own death, when she gave Jan a box of nearly one hundred love letters he had written her during World War II. What follows is the true story of the author’s emotional and life-changing pilgrimage of the heart to find and reclaim the father she thought she’d lost forever.
The letters lead Jan on an extraordinary journey following her father’s actual footsteps during the war years. Each letter brings a bygone era to life, while a series of amazing twists, turns, uncanny coincidences, and the kindness of strangers lead to unexpected discoveries from Morocco to Paris to upstate New York. The adventure comes full circle when Jan finds the Jewish-Moroccan family that provided the lonely soldier a feeling of home, fulfilling a wish unearthed in one of his letters. Along the way, she discovers details about her parents' great love story, and learns about the war in North Africa and the horrific fate of the Jews in Morocco, Germany, and France, bringing her even closer to her own Jewish roots. Most importantly, she discovers the man she thought she would never have the opportunity to know.
"Love, Bill" is a testament to the enduring power of determination, love, family, and the unbreakable bond between fathers and daughters.
