Now that the holidays are behind us and life seems to have slowed a bit, it’s time to let you know how much I loved reading “Elizabeth’s “Field.” My father, who was a news broadcaster his whole life and an avid reader, also loved it. We had some wonderful conversations. I came away from the book with a deeper empathy and gratitude for those who so bravely showed what courage, sacrifice, humanity, relationships, and freedom are about. Your writing captured the richness of the characters so profoundly that I feel they are part of me. I’m curious about you and what lead you to the subject matter in the first place. What I do know, is that you were meant to write. .
