The Blue Box
by M.M. Wagner

Life is fragile, and when it changes without warning, people are changed as well, sometimes irreparably. When circumstances outside our control reshape our lives, who we are and who we have the capacity to become are put to the test. With clarity and knowledge, a deeper understanding can be born. This is the story of two women, living in times and circumstances that couldn’t be more dissimilar. How does a woman struggling to stay alive in Nazi-occupied Poland, have anything in common with a ditzy housewife living in modern day affluence—and yet they are intimately connected in pain and loss and blood. The Blue Box is a story of grief, solitude, and familial bonds, but more importantly, it’s a story about the transformative power of forgiveness.

M. M. Wagner is no stranger to grief, having lost her father at a young age and her husband early in their marriage. These experiences, and the journeys they set her on, aided greatly in the writing of The Blue Box. M.M. Wagner lives in Montreal with her furry family, a feisty Pomeranian and her cuddly Poodle. She has worked in Real Estate for many years, but loves more than anything to ride her horse. Her grown son and daughter, and more recently a high spirited and utterly charming grand-daughter, have been the deepest source of inspiration for the scripting of the book. They live just a few blocks from one another, and she feels blessed that she can frequently saunter over to them, just for a cup of coffee.
