(W) Joseph Sieracki (A/CA) Kelly Williams. As Leonard fights on the front lines of World War II* memories of Josephine and home help keep him alive. As Josephine contends with life* family* and work in Cleveland* letters from Leonard sustain her. But official censorship forces him to leave out much of the most significant action he sees. Finally* with the war coming to an end* Leonard is able to tell his full story. In a quietly beautiful letter to Josephine* Leonard writes of the loneliness he felt* the camaraderie he experienced* and the terrible violence he witnessed. Now* Josephine and Leonard's grandson Joseph Sieracki has carefully researched the battles Leonard describes and expanded the letter into a moving tale of a young man's fears and bravery far from home. Brought to heart-wrenching life by the paintbrushes of Kelly Williams (Creepy* Eerie)* A Letter to Jo is at once a tender love story and a harrowing battlefield memoir. Advance solicited for August release! Includes appendices with photographs* scans of the letter* developmental art* and an illustrated poem by WWII machine-gunner Leonard Sieracki (the author's grandfather).
