Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0979494087, Perfect Paperback)Feisty Lydia is the personal story of a woman born in 1925 in Neuotting, Germany. Her remarkable spirit helped her to survive a premature birth, the Great Depression, death-defying experiences, the Nazi regime, and war in her country. The story continues when this German war bride journeyed with her young son Johnny aboard an American troop ship to America in 1948 to join her husband John. Read how Lydia used her feisty and optimistic spirit to overcome the struggles of life in a new country and to create her Elysian Fields, a place of joy and tranquility, in the city of Elysian, MN. Sprinkled with glimpses of history to provide the setting, the biography of Lydia is created from personal interviews with Lydia, her family, and friends.
