Review

This is a good story. From others, we can draw strength.

From the Author

This was an uplifting book to write and I hope it will be an uplifting book to read. Over the years that included growing up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with some summer weeks spent as a child in my mother's hometown of Chilton, the mosaic of this hugely moving story slowly moved together to give me a pretty good idea of what is an amazing story. After personally sharing parts of this story in various conversations over the years, enough people told me that it was a story worth sharing with others by writing down and publishing it. It often brought tears to my eyes in the telling. It was such an amazing triumph in life and, like life for many people, included heart ripping sadness and totally unexpected joy. Finally, I reached a point where I knew I could write this story, my mother's story, having pulled together enough of the background and history to make a story worth telling to the world. My mother was a sweet and wonderful person and as time passed very few people knew the ordeal she went through as a young, beautiful woman who had thought she had a fairy tale life ahead of her until it all came to a crashing end one winter night in Chilton, Wisconsin over 60 years ago. Every time I told this story and while I was writing it, I tried to imagine what my mother went through, yet it was impossible to fully comprehend her harrowing experience and subsequent view of life she must have held through the remainder of her life. Such courage. Such bravery. How I wish I had even a particle of her strength! Her story tells us that whatever life hands us, life must go on, so we can show people who follow us the way. My mother showed me a lot in her life, maybe the readers will draw some strength and courage from this book as well. And, hopefully, the reader will conclude that this book is a good read. It would be nice to see something like that in the book reviews, then I'd know that I was able to get my mother's story out there!

More About the Author

What a crazy mix of books - a reflection of the author's life! The newest one, Pushing Sugar, might save your life by exposing how big food companies have tricked you. A Love Story shares another person's heartbreak then pays it off with a surprise ending. The short stories in Confessions of a Dating Fool are eye openers as adventures in the dating world.

His newest book, Pushing Sugar, exposes the tricks big food corporations use to get you to buy their products - products that deliver the slow drip poison of sugar, way more than you realize. He is hoping this book will change the way America eats because no one likes being tricked. No one! And he knows all the tricks because as a consultant he helped these companies trick you! He won't help Big Food ever again and says it's a crime that YOU are being deceived.

Thomas is also an artist. He paints under the name Tomaso DiTomaso. Most recently his work is committed to creating greater awareness for the better treatment of animals through themed mixed media paintings that clearly communicate how important animals are to the life and richness of the planet.

I really enjoyed the story-telling quality of this book. Dunker is such a smooth and engaging writer that the story flies by on a roller coaster of emotion. It left me feeling hopeful for all those who never give up and keep the faith. I think this book was about a miracle though Dunker tells it simply as a story of a very courageous woman, who as it turns out was his mother. No one could have gotten through what she did without faith and the power of prayer working in overtime. I am still amazed at the personal sacrifice a priest made who traveled across the country to pray at her bedside on his knees for however long it took to get his prayers answered. Anyone who believes in the power of prayer must read this book! One more thing, I like stories with happy endings though it was an ending I never guessed.

I read this book a while back and recently came across it while doing some re-organizing. It is a thoughtful story that is a reminder that dreams can always be yours if you never let them go and work hard to achieve them .... I can't wait to share this with my friends. Sometimes we just need a special story to inspire us and that is what this book does.

This is the story of a remarkable woman who loved, suffered, and overcame. Her experience is a wonderful story, sweet and inspirational. The book is not a page-turner - it travels along at its own slow pace - but the ending is worth the journey. Each chapter ends with personal observations and philosophies from the author, which may or may not add to the reader's experience. But I digress. I have great admiration for the heroine of the story and I recommend it as a touching read.

using homely language, this author relates an inspiring true tale with some surprising twists, nicely encapsulated in the title. it involves a bunch of people who cannot be held down by adverse events. it models behaviors we can all learn from - simultaneously lovingly assisting someone while encouraging them to be independent, & assuming the reins for compensating for a loss through rigorous self-rehab & attitude (re)alignment.
