COLUMBUS, Ohio - March 9, 2014 - PRLog -- Badgley Publishing Company of Canal Winchester, Ohio is proud to announce the publication of “Where Have all the Flowers Gone?”

The death of a son in Afghanistan has inspired author Diana Hannon Forrester to write a memoir and tribute chronicling the first year after the family received the devastating news that their loving son, brother and husband was killed in action while fighting for their and our freedom.

Wanting to leave something for her Grandson Evan, the book “Where Have all the Flowers Gone?” was originally meant for him as a way to learn about his father and how the family coped with his untimely death.  Evan was only 6 months old when his father was killed. The finished manuscript turned out to be not only a source of information for her Grandson, but for many families who have lost, or will lose someone very close and dear to them, a panacea for grief and an island of comfort.

The story of how this particular family coped with and survived this tragedy gives us valuable insight on how these types of situations can affect the lives of those left behind.  How they dealt with it and achieved inner peace over the course of the first year offers hope and inspiration for others facing the same or similar situations.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated by the author to two scholastic scholarship funds in the name of her son, MSGT Shawn Thomas Hannon.

The book is available in all formats and can be viewed with purchasing options shown at the publisher’s website:
