Published book shares the story of a daughter finding her father through the letters he sent to her mother during World War II
Jan Krulick-Belin releases ‘Love, Bill: Finding My Father through Letters from World War II’
PHOENIX – “It simply began as an exploration into learning more about the father I lost when I was only six years old. But his beautifully written love letters to my mother opened a door that had long been closed to me. As I got more involved in trying to track down my father’s wartime friend, a wish I unearthed in one of his letters, the journey’s amazing twists, turns, and coincidences fueled requests by friends and family to memorialize it in a book. I could not refuse. What began as a search for my father’s friend became the search for the father I needed to find,” Jan Krulick-Belin states.
“Love, Bill: Finding My Father through Letters from World War II” (published by Archway Publishing) chronicles the true story of Krulick-Belin’s life-changing pilgrimage of the heart to find the father she thought she had lost forever. The letters lead her on an extraordinary journey following her father’s actual footsteps during the war years, leading to unexpected discoveries from Morocco to Paris to upstate New York. She learns about her parents’ great love story, about the war in North Africa, and about the fate of the Jews in Morocco, Germany, and France.
“This book is relatable to anyone who has lost a parent, especially a father; anyone who has known the sacrifice of serving overseas; anyone interested in World War II history; anyone interested in Morocco; in Jewish culture and history; in travel; or those just interested in a great love story,” Krulick-Belin says. When asked what she wants readers to take away from the book, she answers, “We have all experienced loss, grief, love, and the quest to understand one’s legacy. It is important to know who we are and where we came from. What did we ‘inherit’ from our family? Those stories are important. They make us who we are.”
“Love, Bill: Finding My Father through Letters from World War II” stands as a testament to the power of determination, love, family, and the unbreakable bond between fathers and daughters.
