For Love and War
By: Ruth Ann
About the Book
While pregnant with their first child, Liz Long’s husband is killed during World War I. After a kind offer of free travel and housing, Liz finally fulfills her dream of immigrating to the United States with her newborn daughter. Liz and her child begin their new lives in Utah, where they both settle in and make friends. As the years fly by, Liz goes from young mother to grandmother, and then great-grandmother. Family dinners cement the bond as the younger generations get married and have children of their own.
Both heartbreaking and inspiring, For Love And War is a multi-generational saga spanning the decades after World War I and into the 1960s. Against the backdrop of small-town America, the family faces hardships like rape, murder investigations, alcoholism, broken marriages, and death—all with the love and care they learned from Liz. Through their individual trials, the family holds strong and stays supportive, even in the darkest of times.
