Mam and Chase - Forgotten Stories
Marguerite Nardone Gruen
In their nineties and married for sixty-nine years, Mam and Chase have had an incredible life, full of love, laughter, and family, and enjoyed an almost magical bond that has helped get them through all the various tragedies and traumas that have befallen them over the years.
While Mam raised five mischievous children, Chase’s absence when he was on tour took a toll on their relationship. Kidnapping threats only added to the strain for the whole family, and Mam had to find new ways to cope with her feelings. But no matter what happened, the family’s love never wavered.
In this, the final book of The Band 4 trilogy, Mam and Chase―along with their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren―look back at their lives, revisiting memories both joyful and devastating, and uncovering truths long buried, as they come to terms with the fact that their unbelievable lives are finally, inevitably, nearing their end.
When Marguerite Nardone Gruen finished the first book of this trilogy, The Band 4 – The Air We Breathe, she realized that she wasn’t done. Mam and Chase’s story, and the love they shared, was simply too big to be contained in a single volume. It was followed by Ed – For Love and Hope, and now by Mam and Chase – Forgotten Stories. Originally inspired by a dream she had, Marguerite has now told Mam and Chase’s story from start to finish, and she (and they) can finally rest.
Marguerite lives in Northeastern Pennsylvania with her husband of thirty-eight years.
