Love of History

Working on this novel about my husband's family during WWII has been a wonderful experience. We visited Slovenia as described below, met a number of his cousins, some of whom we had known many years ago, and developed new friendships. Telling the story of my mother-in-law's family of origin in their charming surroundings of Bled, Slovenia is a pleasure. But delving more deeply into the history of this region is complex. Possession of the territory changes several times as well as political/governmental leadership. It is not always clear who are the heroes and who is protecting the rights of citizens. Sometimes that is defined by the chair in which you are seated. She and her 5 siblings have varying experiences. One brother disappears mysteriously and clues as to what happened to him exist in many books including Tolstoy! I hope to reveal all for you to read sometime in the next year.
