A Post War Family Love Story
by Lynn Hedekar

From what has been called “the greatest generation” comes this tale of two ordinary people who shared an extraordinary life. From childhood accidents, through a world war that brings them together and then keeps them apart, theirs was a relationship that many dream of, but few experience. This is a story of hardship and of hope, of perseverance, and of commitment to a love that endures to the end.

A story of a boy’s farming accident, a girl’s family boat accident, a war that brings them together and keeps them apart followed by a series of challenges. Read about how their relationship weathers the storms of a post war marriage with struggles presented by poverty, child rearing, job insecurity, Attention Deficit, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Can love prevail in this captivating story of family unity?

Lynn Hedekar was the fifth child born to Vera and Wilf Taylor. She grew up in BC, Alberta, NWT and the Yukon. Lynn is now retired and lives on beautiful Vancouver Island.
