Mollie’s War takes you through the romantic and sometimes frightful journey of a Jewish-American WAC during the height of WWII
(PRWEB) October 26, 2011
Schaffer will be on hand to share excerpts from her new book, “Mollie’s War,” and stories of her mother’s experiences as a Jewish member of the WWII Women’s Army Corps
“Mollie’s War” is the story of Mollie Weinstein, a medical transcriber turned Women’s Army Corps (WAC) cadet. During her years overseas, Mollie wrote nearly 350 letters with photos and newspaper clippings that documented the progress of Allied efforts during WWII. Her stories weave the experience of a Jewish-American woman traveling through Germany, England and France, with historical commentary that details the varying emotions of fear, romance, empowerment and repression during life in that era.

Author Cyndee Shaffer is also the current editor of the Midwest Writers Association newsletter. Her extensive work experience has taken her into three divergent careers. First, as high school mathematics teacher in the inner city of Chicago, then as a writer and editor of textbooks, and later as an IT consultant for major companies like Kraft Foods, Allstate Insurance and the City Colleges of Chicago. In 2008, she decided to change careers once more and collaborated with her 92-year-old mother to write a book based on the letters she had sent home during her overseas service in WWII.
