Dear Cec! by John Lincoln Luskin

A family odyssey.

John Lincoln Luskin has lived a full life. He has observed through a sensitive lens-like eye nine decades. He has marched, head held high, through war and peace, depression and good times, and five marriages. Now living comfortably with his wonderful wife, Sonny, and celebrating their 25th anniversary, John looks back at his struggles and accomplishments with an unsentimental sense of one human's history.

This book was written as a catharsis for the author and becomes one for the reader.
