BRONXVILLE, N.Y. (PRWEB) November 04, 2011
Presenting her life story in her autobiography, Eva Vary delivers Almost a Lifetime: A True Story (published by iUniverse), an incredible journey that begins in Hungary around the time of World War II.
Born and raised in Budapest, Hungary, Vary was a first-hand witness to the Nazi occupation of the country during WWII and the Russian occupation after the war. She was educated under Stalin’s rule, becoming a chemical engineer and marrying Jeno, a fellow engineer.
In 1956 Hungary revolted against Russian control, and Vary joined the freedom fighters. When the revolution was quelled and the Russians remained in power, Vary was forced to escape to the west and leave her husband behind. With her mother and daughter, she fled to the U.S., starting a new life in California where she went back to graduate school and with her advanced degree took a job working for an international chemical company.
Vary worked as a research scientist, later as manager, climbing the corporate ladder as a female pioneer in leadership positions. Despite working against the odds and becoming one of the rare female managers, she continued to raise her daughter on her own. Now a grandmother, Vary looks back fondly on her professional and personal successes in Almost a Lifetime.
