Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) December 4, 2009
Julian, a new novel by Albertine Dolores Beacham, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co. Inc.
World War II changed their lives. Julian and his brother, Antoine, like so many other American farm boys, rush to enlist as war breaks out. Action, boredom, decency, betrayal, physical and mental injury, and finally returning to a home that isn't quite the way they left it--here's the story of two who went to war as boys and came home men, and the girls they left behind them.
Albertine Dolores Beacham, born in Rigolets, Louisiana ("about fifty miles from New Orleans"), has been living in Columbus, Georgia, for the last fifteen years. Widowed, she has brought up five children and written two books (Jasmine and Poetry from Past to Present)--enough to keep anyone busy. But Albertine Dolores Beacham isn't one to sit back on her laurels. She has been a member of the Columbus Artist Guild for over forty years, and as well as college classes, she has attended both art school and novel writing school. Along with reading and writing (of course!), she likes joining friends for dinner and outings, playing games, and watching movies.
World War II "was a current event for me," she says. "I'll never forget the blackouts in the city, air raids, rationing...the shouting, hugging when the war was over--I was fourteen when it started."
Julian is a 140-page paperback with a retail price of $16.00. The ISBN is 978-1-4349-0262-7. It was published by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc. of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
