About this title


Tunnels to Freedom is a story about a three generations 19th century Russian/Ukraine peasant family. A young university student the son of a wealthy political father is away at school when his family is murdered by 'unknown raiders' that are also out to kill him. He escapes and changes his identity. During his travels, he meets a young nursing student, her parents also murdered by the same unknown raiders. They travel together and meet a peasant family that teaches them how to become wheat farmers, growing wheat for Russia. They marry, and raise two sons. The oldest son marries and raises three children. Through the years, their wheat fields are set on fire several times by the 'unknown raiders'. At the turn of the century, the 'unknown raiders' massacred the peasants villiages, and the family manages to escape thru a makeshift tunnel, and travel on foot across five different countries seeking a safe place to live and freedom for their children. They come upon an American Medical Missionary woman that offers them help in coming to America. The men work in the shipyards in Greece to earn money to pay for the family's voyage across the Northern Atlantic Ocean on a trawler fishing vessel's 'Maiden Voyage' and get caught in a terrifying hurricane.

About the Author:

I am a California born native,Irish/Swedish/English heritage, youngest of seven children. Married and widowed after forty years of marriage. I have three children, nine grandchildren, and three great grandchildren. I play golf, love to travel, and have several hobbies. The story 'Tunnels to Freedom; Nineteenth Century Russian/Ukraine ... Awna's Journey' is basically a true story, however it is not about my husband's family. In 1976, I met an elderly Russia/Ukraine woman a neighbor of my Inlaws, that told me her story in bits & pieces and broken English. Freedom met so much to her, that she wanted a book written about her family's journey. Like so many unfinished stories that I have tucked away in a drawer, Awna's story kept surfacing in my mind until I finally decided it was time for this story to be told. My first book, 'Rebecca Sue ..searching for Pauley' was published December 1, 2009. My main purpose in writting ... to write a book that high school students would read for book reports and that the story would hold their interest. To write a book that is easy reading, self understanding, teaching, and learning abilities.
