NEW RELEASE! Good Blood: A Journey of Healing
When she was a child, her father said that he had "good blood." It was why he survived and healed.
"Dad, tell me again how you had the bullets taken out without pain medicine and you didn't even cry. Dad, tell me again how you healed."
With my mom, it was different. It was forbidden to talk to her about the Holocaust for fear that she would faint, and I was always afraid she wouldn't come to… it took me over 50 years to get her to share her actual experiences.
- Excerpt from Good Blood: A Journey of Healing
Written by the child of survivors of the Holocaust, this book is a quest into the depth of the human spirit. It is, as well, a rich family memoir, deeply personal, sharing pain and pleasure, confusion and enlightenment, fear and forgiveness, and encompassing the themes of life, love, death, loss, purpose, overcoming fear, and a topic in common with every reader, complicated family relationships. The author searched for the definition and significance of her father's words over two continents and through four generations.
Her journey uncovered a unique voice of wisdom revealing
· mysteries of the healing powers within us;
· resiliency of the human body and spirit; and
· existence of light in every situation that helps us overcome and transcend any obstacle.
