A Grand Rapids, MI native, Amy L. Johnson is a student of life striving to do the next right (or left) thing depending on what inspires her. Amy’s BFA in Graphic Design favors her being curious, creative, considerate, and clever. She loves a good laugh and generally believes that dogs are better than people. This is her first published book.
About the book:
You are about to eavesdrop on a conversation between two brothers from 1942 to 1945. LETTERS Lost Then Found features letters exchanged between 19-year-old Freddie, a first lieutenant in the U.S. Army Air Forces who flew over 120 combat missions, and his 30-year-old brother Willie, Circulation Manager of the Michigan-based Saginaw News. The letters reveal the drama of battle, the daily life that goes on for both brothers, and the vital importance of family connections. Includes a “Day in History” section on each page that provides a glimpse of what was happening in World War II at the time each letter was written. Finally, “LETTERS Lost Then Found” hones in on the China Burma India Theatre, often referred to as the war’s “forgotten” theatre, where Freddie served. A ticker tape reminiscent of the Western Union Telegram runs across the bottom of each page that explains why this theatre was such an important part of the larger conflict.
