About the Author
“This is the story of a remarkable woman; one whose glowing faith shines through her life. After her first marriage failed, she was courted by a sturdy Dutchman, Mac Traas, who served in the Dutch resistance. I was honored to officiate at their wedding in 1984. I know and love both Mac and Marlene well and count them as loyal friends. The story that Marlene tells is about family; tragedy and joy, sickness and health. She is a woman of strong faith, an irrepressible optimist and is just a most delightful woman. God is good!” – Reverent Bernard Warren. Their granddaughter Marlene, continues with the same courage in spite of heart break to seek and find spiritual renewal and strength.
