Christmas at Miner’s Cove. This particular Christmas story was one my mother wrote and then read to me when I was a child.
The Secret of the White Balloon is an inspirational story which is packed with action. It is based on the true story of a Jewish-American pilot who was forced down by the Nazis, landing in a tiny village in the south of France. When I wrote this story it was directed to children about a child who learned a lot about putting Christian love into shoe leather.
The Upstairs Window. Once again, based on a true story as it was told to me by a Holocaust survivor, the “Upstairs Window” tells a story of life in the “safe houses.” In this case the “safe house” was estabilished by Raoul Wallenberg and Per Anger, along with the Swedish embassy in Budapest. The story combines high drama with an important slice of history. It has a strong appeal because of the excitement of the story and its poignant portrayal of the feelings of a child living in those conditions with Thomas the mouse as her best friend.
