This is a blog about my journey, and my book that was published in January. The book Visions from Two Continents is the story of my mother’s life from 1912 to 1955. It is written in her voice so it is considered historical fiction except that it is documented so that one can tell exactly what I made up and what is based upon fact. I hope you will give it a read.
My journey is a trip and a path of self discovery. I am in a place that I haven’t been since I was 16, even though I’m over sixty. I lost my husband of 49 years last January, and I’m having to stretch my brain to do things I always let him do, it is a steep learning curve.
The trip is doing a return journey the same way mother came to America. In 1923 she came to America on a cruise ship to San Francisco. I’m taking a 22 day cruise from San Francisco to Australia, stopping the same ports she stopped in as a little girl coming to America. I have post cards from her journey and I will compare them to what I see now.
I’ve spent two months traveling around Australia, and I’ve written glimpses of most places I’ve been. It has been an amazing journey. My journey of self discovery will continue as I travel home and continue writing my second book.
