I am extraordinarily pleased and proud to present to you my memoir, Star Crossed, to be released November 30, 2013 through Headwinds Publishing.
You’ve already become acquainted with Richard in my blog. What you don’t know is that, when we met, he was a seventeen-year-old Jewish kid. I, at twenty-one, was a Catholic college senior. One day there he was, in the faculty lounge of his high school, where I’d been assigned to fulfill a practice teaching requirement.
Seven weeks later, we were engaged. This was 1968, when Jews and Catholics rarely married “outside.” To say our courtship was ill-received is an understatement. And then the fun began….
I’ve been told, by some of my advance readers, that the book is “poignant, funny, and inspirational.” This chronicle is full of the challenges of faith, family, and dreams put to the test. It gives courage to should-we-or-shouldn’t-we mixed couples of any kind and hope to their hand-wringing, where-did-we-go-wrong parents.
I hope you enjoy reading the story as much as I did its telling.
