British Columbia – The life of a young girl overcoming the obstacles of life in a new country while recovering from heartbreak is chronicled in Karen Bencosy’s historical romance novel, “Pond in the Forest” (published by Trafford Publishing).

When Karin immigrates to Canada from a small German province, she brings emotional baggage in addition to her other luggage. Growing up in post-World War II Germany had been fraught with many challenges, and when Karin fell in love with a local young man, the couple faced disapproval from their families and community because of differences in their social status.

When Karin’s suitor was killed in a tragic accident, she married another man and had two daughters. The marriage failed, and she gathered her children and set out for a better life in Canada, ending up in British Columbia, where she made a new life for her family with hard work and determination.

Years later, love finds its way into Karin’s life again when a close relative of her first love comes into her world. Will she find a new future with this man and open her heart to the possibility of love again?

“Even a young woman can overcome difficulties and make a wonderful life for her two children,” Bencosy says of her protagonist. “You can raise children in difficult situations and also find true love by living an honest God-fearing life.”
