Author Helen I. Donovan presents a story of growing up, working hard and making friends to find happiness and achieve one’s goals in her new book, “A War Bride’s Journey: A Memoir” (published by Archway Publishing).

While growing up in Germany under the reign of Adolf Hitler, the author tells how she found hope and strength in her Christian faith, remaining a bright light in a darkening world. The book offers readers first-hand view into the reality of World War II, suffering, survival and recovery, from a personal perspective, instead of as an incident found in a history book.

“I want my children, grandchildren, and those who come after me not to forget how people like me struggled hard through challenging times to make life beautiful for them and to change the world in a positive way. We did it through small steps, one at a time, with the help of God,” Donovan says, adding “Take nothing for granted.”
