What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My late mother's memoirs inspired me to create a fictional story that could erect a memorial for all those whose dreams were destroyed by a war (not only ww2) and had to survive against all odds.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Most characters were inspired by real characters in my mother's story (with names changed) and some were invented to increase the drama and give further dimensions to the novel.
