Author Cyndee Schaffer discusses women in the military during WWII and in particular, her mother's experiences as a member of the Women's Arm Corps by taking you on a journey from inspiration to publication. Using excerpts from Mollie's letters written home, Cyndee provides a romantic yet frightful glimpse into the life of a woman in uniform during this crucial time in history. She traces the footsteps of her mother and her fellow WAC's who followed the soldiers station in Europe from London to Normandy to Paris to Versailles and finally to Frankfurt. She also discusses the writing adventure from working with her mother on her memoir and learning about the WAC's to finding a traditional publisher. Come join us on this exciting ride through a crucial part of history!
