A Good Man
A Prisoner of War's True Account of Betrayal and Survival During the Second World War
by Jeanie Quirt Brown

This is the story of Lorne Shetler, a distinguished Second World War veteran and former prisoner of war. Driven by a desire to preserve her father's remarkable story for generations to follow, his daughter Jeanie immersed herself in his journals, pictures, and letters home. The result is a captivating chronology that leads the reader from small town Ontario to bombing missions in the skies over Germany, through capture and imprisonment, and finally home.

Jeanie lives at Jones Falls, Ontario, on the historic Rideau Canal, with her husband Nick and black lab, Java. A retired financial planner, she is mom to two daughters, stepmother to two sons and a daughter, and proud "Nanny" to 13 beautiful grandchildren. She enjoys travel, boating, and cards. An avid reader drawn to the many accounts of the brave men and women in the Second World War, she realized her father's story was one that needed to be told. This is her first book.
