Published Book

June 8, 2016 by Janet Krulick KrulickBelin (Register to contact)

I just published my first book--"Love, Bill: Finding My Father through Letters from World War II."
The book is the true story of reconnecting with the father who died when I was just 6 years old through the unexpected inheritance of 100 love letters he had written to my mother during the war. The resulting 5-year pilgrimage of the heart took me to Paris, Morocco, and back to New York to find the man I thought I had lost so long ago.
