Suffering, Love and Hope: A True Lifetime Story.by Alejandro Roque Glez
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
In this biography the protagonist and mother of the family, narrates the story of her life from childhood in those years when the already alluded simplicity was the morning norm, and what we now think of as inseparable and indispensable was not then required like a coined page; but there was more time--under the same one time of today--to talk and directly interact as human beings.
Her story is full of memories, nostalgia, longings, plans that never turned out as desired, and others that came to destination in order to be achieved. Peeked struggles which were never requested nor solicited and tears that were not either called for.
She meets the man of her entire life and married him two years later. In the year 1946, ending the World War II and beginning of the historically so called Cold War between the Socialist and Capitalist camps, under great tension in a very volatile area, her husband departs as a young soldier to the Korean Peninsula, and this just five days after being married, never to be seen both again for over twenty four months. Years ahead unknowingly another tragedy awaited them, her only son was born premature and his eyes burned all while being left in a hospital incubator, becoming totally blind for the rest of his life...
