Author Nancy Peterson talks about her book "Not to be Forgiven: On the Home Front in World War II." In the upheaval of 1942, the small town of Hiram’s Spring suddenly becomes home to a B-17 Bomber training base, then a German Prisoner of War Camp. The Axis powers seem unstoppable. With her brother fighting in North Africa, and fear and suspicion rampant, 10-year-old Sis struggles to understand who is friend and who is foe.

Note from the Author…
“I have written this autobiography as a bit of family history, which I am passing on to my children, grandchildren, great grands and future descendents. I am convinced that my life has been guided by a God-given Divine Plan. It has been an exhilarating experience reliving my busy life as I have written this autobiography. Hopefully, it will be an adventurous document for the readers.”
We all have stories to tell, but sometimes the task of shaping those stories into a book seems overwhelming. Author and teacher Cindy Myers provides guidance and encouragement to help you choose a theme, create an outline, and be on your way to writing your book.
We bring our view of the world, language, and our experiences of being alive through the art of poetry. We will write and share with each other. We will also learn about the publishing process. Sign up is required.
