    It is my book, I still like it!
    I don't always like my books: sometimes it does not come out the way you wanted. In this one, I entered the people I loved, like my first professor of Latin and Greek and of course a man I loved more than anything. And all the stories that my grandparents talked about during world war 2. Sometimes it was about the war, about the Nazis, about how much they loved McAuliffe. Many times it was about things long past. Time was not going as fast as today.
    Many conversations were more serious than they are in families today; I love TV and my computer, but I know they killed real conversation. Now we just communicate feelings, not ideas. It was not the case when I was a kid: more ideas were brought forth, and the feelings were carefully hidden. My parents were of the modern type, but my grandparents were born under Queen Victoria.
    My heroes travel from France to Spain and Portugal, to Ireland and Britain: that gives me an opportunity to present the local politics of the time and some politicians I met later in life. I did a lot of research to find the good hotels and restaurants of the time, describe the meals, the perfumes, the ideas.
    It is a labor of love. The Greatest Generation had his heroes and villains and some terrible temptations. It is there just as I remember it.
    And yes, there is a story. I wanted to describe what happens to three abused kids when they grow up, and there is a war.
    It is a different world than today. I hope you enjoy the trip.
