Encountering along the way heroes of the past and the present, she ultimately finds herself in the midlands of England, as her father’s representative, addressing attendees at memorials honoring regiments of the 82nd Airborne who were billeted there during war.This is a story of loss, self-renewal, and undying love. It is a source of genuine inspiration to all those contemplating such a journey for themselves.
