Gladys Dear*, a Novel
Based on a true story, this yet-to-be-titled* novel is a gripping story based in World War II-era England, where Gladie, a young factory worker, falls in love and is ultimately forced to make an impossible decision that will change the course of not only her life, but the lives of those closest to her.
This is a story of a present-day family piecing together bits of truth about the life and choices made by a woman who, among a web of lies and secrets, left England for America with only one of her two young sons.
Gladie's story isn't just a skeleton in her family's closet, but also an important narrative of life for WWII-era women just like her.
