9780887391088: Dark Clouds and Silver Linings: A True Story of Love, Families, and Wwii

The letters and diaries that make up this book have been saved for more than fifty years. They tell the story of Dorothy Fibush's life at home with her four small children, and the numerous families desperate for housing who shared their home, trials, tribulations and anxiety. "I am in a daze. Don has joined the Navy and will be leaving on January 13th for indoctrination," writes Dot Fibush in the first of the letters in this remarkable book.

About the Author:

Dorothy S. Fibush was born in Georgia in 1908, moved to Berkeley in 1919 and graduated from the University of California in 1930. She married Donald Fibush in 1932. They adopted five children between 1934-1946. Today, Mrs. Fibush's full life includes her ten grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.

Review:

From an atoll in the Pacific, Don Fibush wrote home about his meals of K-rations and Spam, and his cravings for cold rootbeer and milk. He dug foxholes, improvised an outdoor shower behind his tent, endured fungal infections and caught 60 rats on an average day. Assigned to an admiral's staff in the Fifth Fleet, he took part in the Battle of the Phillipine Sea and the retaking of Guam, Saipan, and Tinian, but could describe his exploits only as 'very interesting days' in censored letters home. -- San Jose Mercury News
